Abstract

(Figure Presented). Pumping iron! Convenient iron-based catalyst systems for the selective oxidation of arenes and phenols with hydrogen peroxide to give 1, 4-quinones have been developed. This selective oxidation reaction takes place under mild conditions (room temperature, alcoholic solvents) with H 2O2 as the terminal oxidant.
