Amberlyst-15 catalysed oxidative esterification of aldehydes using a H2O2 trapped oxidant as a terminal oxidant

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple and efficient method has been developed for the selective oxidative esterification of aldehydes using commercially available Amberlyst-15 as a catalyst. H2O2 released from a clathrate structured 4Na2SO4·2H2O2·NaCl oxidant serves as an efficient source of terminal oxidants. Various aromatic, heteroaromatic, and aliphatic aldehydes undergo selective esterification to give good to excellent yield. The heterogeneous catalyst, Amberlyst-15, exhibits high reactivity and can be recycled over several runs. The 4Na2SO4·2H2O2·NaCl oxidant was found to be superior to commonly used oxidizing agents providing an anhydrous, easy to handle and stable form of H2O2.
