Organic Chemistry, A Series of Monographs, Volume 5-D: Oxidation in Organic Chemistry is a four-chapter text that discusses the specific oxidants in oxidation reactions of organic compounds. Chapter I covers oxidations with lead tetraacetate, an oxidant that has been used widely for the selective oxidation of a variety of functional groups. Chapter II examines an oxidant that has a long and extensive history, the permanganate, with emphasis on phase transfer assisted permanganate oxidations. Chapter III discusses the intramolecular oxidative coupling of aromatic substrates, highlighting the utility of developed methods, such as vanadium oxytrifluoride oxidations, in the syntheses of complex natural products. Chapter IV describes the process of coal oxidation with emphasis on the selective oxidative degradation procedures as tools for characterization of coal structure. This text will be of value to organic chemists, researchers, teachers, and students who are interested in oxidation of organic compounds.
