Primary and secondary alcohols with benzylically and allylically activated C-H bonds are chemoselectively oxidized to the corresponding carbonyl compounds by the (salen)Cr(III) complex I as the catalyst and iodosobenzene as the oxygen source; the oxidizing species is the Cr(V) oxo complex. Allylic alcohols with fully substituted double bonds give… CONTINUE READING
