Abstract: Fenton‐type reactions using transition metal complexes in the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to hydroxyl radical generation have received special attention due to their advantages over classical homogeneous processes involving soluble iron salts. Thus, the goal of this study was to investigate the use of an iron complex with the ligand pyridine‐2,6‐dicarboxylic acid (dipicolinic acid or DPA) as a homogeneous catalyst for the oxidation of the quinoline. The synthesized iron complex showed a molar ratio of 1:2 metal/ligand and was efficient in the quinoline oxidation at pH values near neutrality. The tests were monitored by mass spectrometry that allows identification of the different intermediates and showed complete oxidation of the quinolone compound. Moreover, in order to shed some light on the formation of hydroxyl radicals and the overall reaction mechanism, some theoretical calculations at the DFT level were performed. The results of this study demonstrated that the iron‐DPA complex is a good catalyst for the oxidation of quinoline by a Fenton‐like mechanism. All theoretical data show good agreement with experimental results.
