Transition-metal-free aerobic oxidative cleavage of C-C bonds in α-hydroxy ketones and mechanistic insight to the reaction pathway.

Abstract

Clear cut: For the title reaction, O(2), the ideal oxidant, was used as the only oxidizing reagent. The dimer intermediate (see scheme) and isotopic labeling control experiments with (18)O(2) partially disclosed the reaction mechanism.
