CHAPTER 2

Copper Catalysts for Aerobic Oxidation of Alcohols

Inspired by reactions catalyzed by galactose oxidase, a copper-containing enzyme, extensive studies were carried out on copper-based catalysts for alcohol oxidation using O2 as the terminal oxidant. Significant advances have been made towards the development of homogeneous and heterogeneous copper catalysts. These advances over the past decades are reviewed.
