Buchler Glossary


Hydroxylation is a chemical process that introduces a hydroxyl group (-OH) into an organic compound. Hydroxylation reactions are typically very common reactions for compounds that have aromatic rings in their chemical structures.

Hydroxylation examples catalyzed by cinchona alkaloid derivatives can be found in our free of charge Chiral Catalyst Search Data Base.
