An efficient, practical and expeditious method has been developed for the oxidation of thebaine to 14-hydroxycodeinone in excellent yield by employing 20 mol% of V2O5 in the presence of 30% H2O2 in aqueous medium. The method provides a clean technological process for the preparation of a key drug intermediate, 14- hydroxycodeinone.
