Mechanistic aspects of the electrocatalytic oxidative cleavage of 1,2-diols by electrogenerated Pb(IV)

Abstract:

The electrochemical oxidation of Pb(II) to Pb(IV) in acetonitrile solution containing benzoic acid and pyridine is possible at a basal-plane pyrolytic-graphite electrode and associated with a rapid ligand exchange at the metal center. The Pb(IV) species generated under these conditions is shown to react with diols such as 1,2:5,6-di-O-isopropylidene-D-mannitol, 1,2-ethanediol, cis- and trans-1,2-cyclopentanediol, which undergo a two-electron oxidation associated with carbon-carbon bond cleava...
