tpap, as it is affectionately known, is a ruthenium-based oxidant of primary alcohols to aldehydes discovered by Griffith and Ley. Whereas ruthenium tetroxide (RuO4) is a voracious oxidant, its radical anion countered by a tetra-propylammonium cation is considered a more moderate animal. In this post, I want to try to use quantum mechanically derived energies as a pathfinder for exploring what might be going on (or a reality-check if you like). The calculations are at the (u)wB97Xd/Def2-SVP level, with a pseudopotential for Ru.
