Thiourea-Enhanced Flavin Photooxidation of Benzyl Alcohol

Svoboda, J. ; Schmaderer, H. ; König, B.


Upon irradiation, flavin oxidises 4-methoxybenzyl alcohol to the corresponding aldehyde using aerial O(2) as the terminal oxidant. We have observed that this reaction is significantly accelerated by the presence of thiourea. A series of thiourea-functionalised flavins has been prepared from flavin isothiocyanates and their photocatalytic efficiencies have been monitored by NMR. The alcohol ...
