Oxidative dimerization of anilines with heterogeneous sulfonic acid catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report herein that suitably supported perfluorosulfonic acids can catalyze the oxidative dimerization of anilines using hydrogen peroxide as a clean oxidant. The reaction does not require the use of organic solvents and affords desired azobenzenes and water as products, minimizing the formation of wastes. The metal-free solid catalyst shows remarkable activity and selectivity for the reaction, which occurs under very mild conditions and with broad functional group tolerance.
