PAGE, B.C.P. ... et al, 2007. In-situ generation of 2-Iodoxybenzoic Acid (IBX) in the presence of Tetraphenylphosphonium monoperoxysulfate (TPPP) for the conversion of primary alcohols into the corresponding aldehydes. SYNLETT, 2007 (10), pp. 1565-1568
Primary alcohols are oxidized to the corresponding aldehydes by tetraphenylphosphonium monoperoxysulfate (TPPP) in the presence of catalytic 2-iodobenzoic acid. Over-oxidation to carboxylic acids is not observed, in contrast to the use of catalytic 2-iodobenzoic acid with Oxone as reoxidant.
