Abstract

A direct oxidative approach to alkenyl aldehydes from allyl arenes via allyl sp3 C-H functionalization was disclosed. An inexpensive iron catalyst was employed to facilitate this transformation. The mechanistic studies indicate that the cleavage of the allyl sp3 C-H bond is involved in the rate-determining step.
