N2O-Free single-pot conversion of cyclohexane to adipic acid catalysed by an iron(II) scorpionate complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

The highly efficient eco-friendly synthesis of adipic acid (96% yield, 98% selectivity, TONs up to 1.8 × 103) directly from cyclohexane is achieved by using ozone and [FeCl23-HC(pz)3}] (pz = pyrazol-1-yl) in a solvent-, heating-, radiation- and N2O-free new protocol.
