5-Fluoro-2-azaadamantane N-oxyl (5-F-AZADO) realizes a simple, organocatalytic aerobic alcohol oxidation system that has a wide scope under mild conditions at ambient pressure and temperature and is weakly acidic and halogen- and transition-metal-free. The oxoammonium nitrate (5-F-AZADO +NO3-) works as a bifunctional catalyst of 5-F-AZADO and NOx that enables the catalytic aerobic oxidation of alcohols by itself (a metal-salt-free system).
