Abstract

The selective oxidation of alcohols with molecular oxygen was efficientlycompleted in high conversion and selectivity using copper-bisisoquinoline-based catalystsunder mild reaction condition. The effects of various parameters such as reactiontemperature, reaction time, oxidant, ligands, etc, were studied. Solvent effect has been aswell studied in ionic liquids [bmim]PF6, [omim]BF4 and [hmim]BF4, comparing totraditional volatile organic solvent. The use of ionic liquids was found to enhance thecatalytic properties of the catalysts used.
Keywords: selective oxidation of alcohols; copper-bisisoquinoline-based catalysts; ionic liquids. selective oxidation of alcohols; copper-bisisoquinoline-based catalysts; ionic liquids.
