Thiourea dioxide with TBHP: a fruitful and greener recipe for the catalytic oxidation of alcohols

Author affiliations

Abstract

Thiourea dioxide, owing to its hydrogen bonding ability, has been established as an exceptional, widely applicable organocatalyst. In the present paper, thiourea dioxide, an organocatalyst, in combination with t-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP), a non-toxic and environmentally benign oxidant, serves to be a greener and more fruitful approach for the oxidation of alcohols to corresponding carbonyl compounds in excellent yields under mild reaction conditions.
