A non-metal catalysed oxidation of primary azides to nitriles at ambient temperature

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel non-metal catalyzed oxidation of organic azides to nitriles under solvent-free conditions is presented employing catalytic amounts of KI, and DABCO in aq. TBHP at room temperature. This non-metal catalyzed oxidation of azides provides good selectivity as double and triple bonds were not oxidized under the present reaction conditions.
