One step from alcohol to ester: A palladium-catalyzed oxidative esterification of various benzylic alcohols with methanol and long-chain aliphatic alcohols was carried out in the presence of molecular oxygen as the oxidant (see scheme). By considering the effects of substitution and potential mechanistic pathways, the applicability of this method to a range of different substrates was shown.
