Hollow iron oxide nanoshells are active and selective catalysts for the partial oxidation of styrene with molecular oxygen

Abstract

Well defined hollow iron oxide nanoshells are active, selective and recyclable catalysts for the oxidation of styrene into benzaldehyde using difficult-to-activate molecular oxygen as the sole oxidant. Using no noble metals, unprecedented conversion of 90% was maintained while high selectivity of 73% was able to be achieved.
