Tuning the redox potential of vitamin K3 derivatives by oxidative functionalization using a Ag(I)/GO catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

We propose herein initial results to develop optimum redox mediators by the combination of computational simulation and catalytic functionalization of the core structure of vitamin K3. We aim to correlate the calculated energy value of the LUMO of different vitamin K3 derivatives with their actual redox potential. For this, we optimized the catalytic alkylation of 1,4-naphthoquinones with a designed Ag(I)/GO catalyst and synthesized a series of molecules.
