Boyland-Sims Oxidation

Boyland-Sims Oxidation

General Characteristics Anilines can be converted into aminophenols by the reaction called the Boyland-Sims oxidation. Ortho-hydroxylated products are usually obtained preferentially. The oxidation ...

Corey-Gilman-Ganem Oxidation

Characteristics The Corey-Gilman-Ganem oxidation transforms benzylic or α,β-unsaturated aldehydes into the corresponding methyl esters. The aldehydes can be selectively oxidized to esters in presence ...
