Environmental factors urge to use catalytic rather than stoichiometric oxidation methods. Over the last thirty years, we have reported a large panel of Cr-catalyzed oxidations. This mini-review concerns the benzylic, allylic and propargylic oxidations using CrVI catalysts and t-BuOOH under homogeneous conditions, and summarizes our results and those of the literature.

Keywords: Chromium oxides, tert-butyl hydroperoxide, catalysis, benzylic oxidation, allylic oxidation, propargylic oxidation, mechanism
