Mechanism for Oxidation of Alkyl Benezes


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the mechanism for the reaction which converts a benyzlic carbon (with a hydrogen) into a carboxylic acid using MnO4-. Googling has yeilded several sites mentioning the reaction, but none explaining the mechanism and I'm not sure where to look. I was told the mechanism involves radicals, but I know nothing more than this. Can anyone help?
