Oxidation of natural compounds catalyzed by Mn(III) porphyrin complexes
The oxidation of 1,8-cineole (1) and methyl dehydroabietate (8b) by hydrogen peroxide, catalysed by Mn(III) porphyrin complexes, is reported. Five oxygenated products (2-6) have been obtained from reactions at positions 2 and 3 of 1,8-cineole and three oxygenated products (9-11) from the reaction at position 7 of methyl dehydroabietate.
