A Convenient Pd-Mediated Oxidation of 4-Methylbenzyl Alcohol
Published: 31 October 2013 by MDPI in The 17th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: A mild and convenient Pd-mediated aerobic oxidation of 4-methylbenzyl alcohol is described. We have applied the catalytic system Pd(OAc)2/Et3N to the oxidation of 4 methylbenzyl alcohol to 4-methylbenzyaldehyde. This method has resulted effective at room temperature without oxygen or air stream and without activated molecular sieves.
