Visible light flavin photo-oxidation of methylbenzenes, styrenes and phenylacetic acids

Lechner, Robert ; Kümmel, S. ; König, Burkhard


We report the photocatalytic oxidation of benzylic carbon atoms under mild conditions using riboflavin tetraacetate as photocatalyst and blue-emitting LEDs (440 nm) as light source. Oxygen is the terminal oxidant and hydrogen peroxide appears as the only byproduct in most cases. The process oxidizes toluene derivatives, stilbenes, styrenes and phenylacetic acids to their corresponding ...
