Title: Concerted proton-electron transfer oxidation of phenols and hydrocarbons by a high-valent nickel complex

Abstract

A high-valent nickel(III) compound performs fast concerted proton–electron transfer on O–H and C–H bonds. Thermodynamic analysis suggests that the oxidizing power of the compound and the formation of a strong ligand O–H bond lead to high reactivity.
