Abstract We developed an aerobic photooxidative synthesis of peroxybenzoic acids from toluenes using anthraquinone-2-carboxylic acid (AQN-2-CO 2 H) as a photocatalyst. We also found a one-pot epoxidation reaction of alkenes using 4- tert -butylperoxybenzoic acid produced in situ by aerobic photooxidative synthesis.
