The new, mild chromium(VI) oxidizing agent, quinaldinium chlorochromate supported on neutral alumina, was prepared as a stable yellow solid. The reagent is suitable to oxidize various primary and secondary alcohols to the corresponding carbonyl compounds and anthracene to anthraquinone in good yields.
