Abstract

A solid source of ‘active’ oxygen (acetylperoxyborate, APB), when dissolved in aqueous solution in the presence of a single-site microporous catalyst containing redox centres (FeIIIAlPO-31, MnIIIAlPO-5, FeIIIAlPO-5), converts cyclohexane with high efficiency (ca. 88%) and exceptionally high selectivity (ca. 81%) to adipic acid at 383 K; this procedure is also effective in converting styrene to styrene oxide and α-pinene and (+)-limonene to their corresponding epoxides.
