In this study, the selective oximation of structurally diverse aromatic aldehydes (versus ketones) to the corresponding aldoxime derivatives was investigated using the combination system of NH2OH·HCl and bis-thiourea complexes of cobalt, nickel, copper and zinc chlorides, M II (tu)2Cl2, in a mixture of CH3CN-H2O (1:1). All reactions were carried out successfully at room temperature within the immediate time up to 130 min giving the products in high yields. Investigation of the results exhibited
