Iron-mediated cleavage of C-C bonds in vicinal tricarbonyl compounds in water.
- Three of a kind: Vicinal tricarbonyl compounds undergo C-C cleavage mediated by ferric ions (see scheme). The observed cleavage of ninhydrin and dehydroascorbic acid has relevance for amino acid detection and the metabolism of vitamin C.
