A facile preparation of novel polystyrene-supported iodosylbenzene (PS-ISB, loading of IO up to 1.50 mmol/g) from iodopolystyrene is described. This resin has been successfully used for efficient oxidation of a diverse collection of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones in the presence of BF3OEt 2. PS-ISB can also be employed as efficient co-catalyst in combination with RuCl3 in the catalytic oxidation of alcohols and aromatic hydrocarbons, respectively, to corresponding carboxylic acids and ketones using Oxone as the stoichiometric oxidant.
