A new catalytic system for the hydrogen transfer oxidation of alcohols catalyzed by iridium complexes bearing a functional pyridonate ligand has been developed. By using isopropenyl acetate as a hydrogen acceptor, a variety of primary alcohols were efficiently converted to the corresponding aldehydes in moderate to excellent yields.
