Catalytic Photooxidation of 4-Methoxybenzyl alcohol with a Flavin Zinc(II) cyclen complex

Cibulka, R. ; Vasold, R. ; König, B.


Flavin-zinc(II)-cyclen 10 contains a covalently linked substrate binding site (zinc(II)-cyclen) and a chromophore unit (flavin). Upon irradiation, compound 10 effectively oxidizes 4-methoxybenzyl alcohol (11-OCH3) to the corresponding benzaldehyde both in water and in acetonitrile. In the presence of air, the reduced flavin 10-H2 is reoxidized, and so catalytic amounts of 10 are sufficient for ...
