Simple Vanadium(V) Catalyst for Oxidation of Alkane with O_2 under Mild Conditions
Selective oxidation of cyclohexane and adamantane was performed by simple V(5+) catalyst with 1 atm O<SUB>2</SUB> in acetic acid at 338–393 K. UV–vis and electron spin resonance studies suggested that peroxide species on V(5+) functioned during the oxidation. The oxidation activity was enhanced three times for cyclohexane and 6.5 times for adamantane by addition of a small amount of CF<SUB>3</SUB>SO<SUB>3</SUB>H.
