Cyanogen formation during asymmetric cyanohydrin synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

During asymmetric cyanohydrin synthesis catalysed by vanadiumVoxo(salen) complexes, the catalysts are reduced to vanadiumIVoxo(salen) as determined by EPR spectroscopy; the reducing agent is cyanide which is oxidised to cyanogen via a non-radical mechanism.
