Abstract

In this work, two new aerobic routes are introduced for the oxidation of a variety of benzoins to benzils by using molecular oxygen in the presence of porphyrins as sensitizers, using white light or sunlight in acetonitrile under mild conditions. The methods have a wide range of applications, do not involve cumbersome work-up, exhibit chemoselectivity and proceed under mild reaction conditions. The resulting products are obtained in good yields in a reasonable time.
