In Situ Generation of 2-Iodoxybenzoic Acid (IBX) in the Presence of Tetraphenylphosphonium Monoperoxysulfate (TPPP) for the Conversion of Primary Alcohols into the Corresponding Aldehydes
06 June 2007 (online)
Primary alcohols are oxidized to the corresponding aldehydes by tetraphenylphosphonium monoperoxysulfate (TPPP) in the presence of catalytic 2-iodobenzoic acid. Overoxidation to carboxylic acids is not observed, in contrast to the use of catalytic 2-iodobenzoic acid with Oxone® as reoxidant.
IBX - TPPP - Oxone® - oxidation - aldehyde - alcohol
