- The DFT optimised geometries and computed free enthalpies of various primary alcohols and aldehydes was used to calculate the thermodynamics of the oxidation reaction of various primary alcohols in presence of TEMPO+ cation and NaCO3- anion.
- The thermodynamics of formation of a cyclic intermediate formed by attack of an alkoxide on the nitrogen of the TEMPO+ cation was also calculated.
- Transition states for the deprotonation step as well as the hydride transfer from the cyclic intermediate were also calculated and used to calculate the related
activation barriers for each alcohols.
