The Dess–Martin oxidation is an organic reaction for the oxidation of primary alcohols to aldehydes and secondary alcohols to ketones using Dess-Martin periodinane. It is named after the American chemists Daniel Benjamin Dess and James Cullen Martin who developed the periodinane reagent in 1983.
The acceleration of the Dess–Martin oxidation reaction using water has been shown by Meyer and Schreiber.
