- The straightforward oxidation of electron-rich arenes, namely, phenols, naphthols, and anisole derivatives, under mild reaction conditions, is described by means of the use of an environmentally benign HFIP-UHP system. The corresponding quinones or hydroxylated arenes were obtained in moderate to good yields.
