CHAPTER 3

Oxidation and Reduction by Solid Oxidants and Reducing Agents using Ball-Milling

Mechanochemical protocols for oxidation and reduction are widely reported in the literature. Mechanical treatments in the presence of air or suitable solid reagents strongly promote organic and inorganic oxidations. Typical solid reducing agents also enable fast and efficient reduction of different functional groups. A thorough literature survey has shown how mechanochemical oxidations/reductions will continue to act as enabling technology that will spur further developments both on a laboratory and an industrial scale.
