Abstract

A new solvent-free, reusable catalytic combination consisting Of WO3/70% TBHP/aqueous NaOH has been described for the direct oxidation of methylarenes and acetophenones to the corresponding benzoic acids in high yields. Alkylarenes are oxidized to the corresponding aromatic ketones or benzylic alcohols depending upon whether NaOH is used or not. ((C) Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 69451 Weinheim, Germany, 2008)
