Da-ddy, DDQ: By using catalytic amounts of DDQ combined with MnO2 as oxidant, an efficient oxidative C[BOND]O coupling of benzylic sp3 C[BOND]H bonds with carboxylic acids affords a series of carboxylic esters in 70–98 % yields. A wide range of functional groups and various carboxylic acids are tolerated. The reaction involves both C[BOND]H functionalization and C[BOND]O bond formation.
