  1. For all reactions, the used copper concentration was kept constant, whereby that for reactions using copper(II) ascorbate was used in tenfold excess. Yields were determined by HPLC, and for the superior conditions, n = 3. aPerformed at 110°C for 10 min and a mode with 1-min pre-run and a maximum power of 300 W; bperformed at 65°C. n.d., no data.
