Recent efforts to design synthetic quinone-based catalysts for the efficient aerobic oxidation of amines to imines have been inspired by copper amine oxidases (CuAOs), a family of metalloenzymes which selectively converts primary amines into aldehydes, using molecular oxygen through the cooperation of a quinone-based cofactor, 2,4,5-trihydroxyphenylalanine… CONTINUE READING
