Selective Oxidation of sp^3 C-H Bonds in Water Catalyzed by a Glycinate-Platinum(II) Complex


In aqueous solution, [Pt^(II)(glycinato)Cl_2]^− catalyzes oxidation by [Pt^(IV)Cl_6]^(2−) of the methyl group of p-toluenesulfonate to the corresponding alcohol and aldehyde, with no further oxidation to the carboxylic acid. Both rate and selectivity are improved in comparison to the original Shilov system that employs [Pt^(II)Cl_n(H_2O)_(4−n)]^(2−n) as the catalyst.
