Catalytic aerobic oxidation of phenols to ortho-quinones with air-stable copper precatalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

A range of air-stable copper species was examined for catalytic activity in the catalytic aerobic transformation of phenols into ortho-quinones. Efficient catalysis was obtained with commercially available copper(II) acetate. The stability of all constituents before mixing makes for a practical process that advances previously reported copper(I)-based oxygenations.
