Strong, silent type: A novel alkoxyamine-type organocatalyst has been discovered for alcohol oxidation (see scheme). The alkoxyamine exhibits a high catalytic activity for the oxidation of alcohols to afford the corresponding carbonyl compounds in high yield by oxidative transformation into an oxoammonium ion, which is proposed to serve as an active species.
