Oxidation with air by ascorbate-driven quinone redox cycling

Oxidation with air by ascorbate-driven quinone redox cycling

Chemical Communications 51(32): 7027-7030

Transition metal-free oxidation with air at room temperature has been achieved by simply using ascorbate (vitamin C) and catalytic amounts of menadione (vitamin K3). A combination of the mentioned vitamins transforms atmospheric oxygen into hydrogen peroxide, which is able to oxidize arylboronic acids and other chemical moieties.
