Zinc bismuthate is an easily prepared and a stable compound. It could be used as an oxidant in organic solvents under aprotic or in the presence of a catalytic amount of a protic solvent. Primary and secondary saturated, allylic, and benzylic alcohols are converted to their carbonyl compounds in high yields. Mildness of the reagent is shown by the oxidation of thiols to their disulfides in excellent yields. Thioethers are also oxidized to their corresponding sulfoxides in good yields.
