Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Facile Oxidation of Benzyl Ethers by in situ Generated o-Iodoxybenzoic Acid
by Neupane, Bishnu Prasad, M.S., Western Illinois University, 2020, 61; 28258924
Abstract (Summary)

The IBX mediated oxidation of benzyl ethers 44, 46 and 48 have achieved in good to excellent yields in the presence of phase transfer catalyst, tetrabutylammonium hydrogensulfate (n-Bu4NHSO4). The optimization of reaction parameters such as solvents, reaction time, amount of Oxone, and effect of phase transfer catalyst were carried out. This report highlights the synthesis of benzyl ethers, their oxidative cleavage into carbonyl compounds and the mechanism of reactions involved.
