A golden future for oxidation reactions in the chemical industry

Jerrik Mielby, Anders Riisager & Søren Kegnæs
To develop a more sustainable chemical industry, there is an urgent need for more efficient and environmentally benign oxidation processes. Aerobic oxidation of alcohols is an emerging field in organic chemistry and represents a green and highly atom-efficient alternative to the methods often used in industry. Here, we show that supported gold nanoparticles form active and highly selective heterogeneous catalysts in a range of aerobic oxidations. The formation of imines by oxidative coupling of alcohols...
