|Abstract||Selective oxidation of substituted phenols to p-benzoquinones is known to be inefficient because of the competing C-O coupling reaction caused by phenoxy radicals. The poor stability of conventional metal-based catalysts represents another bottleneck for industrial application. Here, we describe a metal-free reaction pathway in which onion-like carbon (OLC) as a low-cost catalyst exhibits excellent catalytic activity and stability in the selective oxidation of mono-, di- and trisubstituted phenols to their corresponding p-benzoquinones, even better than the reported metal-based catalysts (e.g., yield, stability) and industrial catalysts for particular substrates. Together with XPS, Raman, DFT calculations, and a series of comparative experiments, we demonstrate that the zigzag configuration as a type of carbon defects may play a crucial role in these reactions by stabilizing the intermediate phenoxy radicals.|
