Abstract

We have investigated the reaction mechanism of the selective aerobic oxidation of primary alcohols into aldehydes using a bipy-copper complex and the 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyl-1-oxy (TEMPO) radical as cocatalysts (Gamez et al. Chem. Commun. 2003, 2412-2415) and compared it to the well-known oxidation by the TEMPO
