Mechanistic investigation of the gold-catalyzed aerobic oxidation of aldehydes: added insight from Hammett studies and isotopic labelling experiments

Author affiliations

Abstract

The gold-catalyzed aerobic oxidation of aldehydes proceeds through development of a partial negative charge and has a significant kinetic isotope effect (kH/kD = 2.8–2.9), which illustrates that activation of the C–H bond takes place in the rate-determining step.
