    Hi, Denis is my name.
    Study chemistry in Germany. Have to know the mechanism of the
    reoxidation to TPAP by NMO after TPAP has oxidized an alcohol.
    Could you help me? Thx, Denis

    Hi Denis what do TPAP and NMO stand for?
  4. Jan 7, 2004 #3
    tetrapropyl ammonium peruthenate and 4-methyl N-morpholine oxide. A common oxidant for conversion of alcohols to aldehydes.

    For the original question, Steven Ley wrote an excellent review, I'd strongly suggest reading it: Synthesis (1994), (7), 639-66
