Selective C-H Bond Electro-oxidation of Benzylic Acetates and Alcohols to Benzaldehydes

Abstract

A chemical oxidant-free and mediator-free, direct electro-oxidation of both benzylic alcohols and benzylic esters are reported. The scope of the reaction is explored as a function of both steric and electronic effects. Expansion of the scope to non-benzylic and heteroaryl substrates are investigated. Functionalisation of esters and alcohols selectively to the next oxidation level using a traceless electron approach is reported.
