Electron-rich aromatic compounds undergo a facile tandem reaction sequence involving an iterative two-electron oxidation/aromatization. This review will describe the application of this motif to the synthesis of dimethylbenzimidazole, pyoverdine, actinomycin, cystodytin, pyrroloquinoline quinone, and the cataract pigment.
