HMTA-2Br2 is a yellow solid with uniform shape which makes the oxidation of 2,4- dinitrophenylhydrazone made of Aldehyde and Ketone to carbonyl combination possible. The advantages in using the HMTAB are mentioned as the hydrolysis with minimum period of time, moderate condition for the reaction, the optimal characteristic of the oxidant to the Br2 and most of the common oxidants, the certainty of the end of the reaction, the facilitation of the reaction collection which is possible with the simple extraction process, and the lack of using the complex system and the lack of extra oxidation.
