(±)-trans, cis-4-Benzoyloxy-2,2,8a-trimethyldecahydroquinolinyl-N-oxyl reveals a reversible redox peak whose oxidation potential is at + 0.55V vs. Ag/AgCl. The compound catalyzed the oxidation reactions of benzyl alcohol and 1-phenethyl alcohol to benzaldehyde and acetophenone, respectively, in satisfied current efficiency ( 74.4-80.6%) and selectivity (100%).
