Abstract

The oxidation of 2-(α-hydroxybenzyl)- and 2-(1-hydroxyethyl)thiazolium ions with 3-methyllumiflavin was studied kinetically in an aqueous buffer solution. The results indicate that the rate-determining step is carbanion formation followed by rapid oxidation. The carbanion formation was subjected to general base catalysis.
