Recent advances in transition-metal catalyzed reactions using molecular oxygen as the oxidant

Author affiliations

Abstract

For green and sustainable chemistry, molecular oxygen is considered as an ideal oxidant due to its natural, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly characteristics, and therefore offers attractive academic and industrial prospects. This critical review introduces the recent advances over the past 5 years in transition-metal catalyzed reactions using molecular oxygen as the oxidant. This review highlights the scope and limitations, as well as the mechanisms of these oxidation reactions (184 references).
