Catalytic Asymmetric C–H Oxidation with H2O2 and O2

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter surveys the existing catalyst systems, either organocatalytic or metal-based, for the chemo- and stereoselective oxidation of C–H groups with the environmentally benign oxidants H2O2 and O2, reported in the last 30 years. Both the approaches relying on “classical” asymmetric oxidation and oxidative desymmetrization of complex substrates are considered, with focus on the catalytic properties of the catalysts, such as chemo- and stereoselectivity, activity, efficiency, and substrate scope. Currently available data on the nature of the catalytically active sites, the mechanisms of oxidant activation and C–H activation, and of oxygen transfer, are presented
