A convenient and sustainable protocol for the aerobic oxidation of benzyl alcohols to carbonyl compounds, based on the use of 1,2,4-triazole-type ligands and nickel(II) bromide, is described. This combination leads to the formation of an exceedingly active, enzyme-like system that allows for other oxidative processes, such as benzylic C-H oxidation and(More)
The oxidation of benzylic alcohols is a ubiquitous transformation in organic chemistry due to the relevance of aryl ketones, present in natural products and pharmaceutically active compounds and also intermediates in the synthesis of agrochemicals, medicines and other functional materials. Numerous oxidizing agents are available to effect this key reaction.(More)
