Bis(methanesulfonyl) peroxide

Recent Literature

The use of bis(methanesulfonyl) peroxide as an oxidant enables a selective synthesis of benzylic alcohols without further oxidation of alcohols to ketones. A proton-coupled electron transfer mechanism (PCET) may account for the difference in reactivity.
