journal contributionposted on 2003-08-09, 00:00 authored by Bernd Plietker
A new mild method for the oxidation of a variety of olefins to α-hydroxy ketones is described. Using the concept of a nucleophilic reoxidant, different olefins were ketohydroxylated with high regioselectivity in good to excellent yields.
