Polymeric N-halamines have been previously employed for organic reactions such as sulfide oxidation. In the present study, we employed polymeric N-halamines to oxidize primary alcohols selectively to the corresponding aldehydes in excellent yields. After reaction, the polymers can be recycled and then reused for the next reaction process.
