Abstract

Summary

The reaction of Vv with 3,4-dihydroxyphenylethanoic acid (3,4-DHPE) was studied by various spectroscopic techniques. Vanadium-catechol complexation is the first step, and is followed by stepwise ligand degradation, leading to several products, including AcOH. The mechanism of this degradation is investigated.
