The synthesis of a broad range of oximes has been studied. It was found that the application of microwave heating enhanced dramatically the reaction rate, and practically quantitative yields of oximes were isolated after less than 1-min heating in the most cases. The effect of solvents on the course of the reaction was also studied.
