A highly selective vanadium catalyst for benzylic C–H oxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Vanadium complexes have been used extensively to catalyze olefin and alcohol oxidation. However, their application in C–H oxidation has not been well-studied. We report herein that commercially available Cp2VCl2 catalyzes benzylic C–H oxidation selectively and effectively, giving no aromatic oxidation products.
