The performance of catalysts made using Au101(PPh3)21Cl5 nanoparticles immobilized on Norit® activated carbon powder was investigated in the aerobic oxidation of benzyl alcohol in basic methanolic solution. The catalyst was activated by washing with hot toluene, followed by heat treatment in static air at 100 °C for 3 h. Effects of key parameters, such as the amounts of benzyl alcohol and base (K2CO3), reaction temperature, reaction time and solvent were explored, as was the longer-term…

Factors influencing the catalytic oxidation of benzyl alcohol using supported phosphine-capped gold nanoparticles
Two phosphine-stabilised gold clusters, Au101(PPh3)21Cl5 and Au9(PPh3)8(NO3)3, were deposited and activated on anatase TiO2 and fumed SiO2. These catalysts showed an almost complete oxidation of
Gold catalyzed liquid phase oxidation of alcohol: the issue of selectivity.
An increase of basic functionalities produced a consistent increase in the activity of the catalyst, which was correlated to the promoting effect of the basic support in the alcoholate formation and the subsequent C-H bond cleavage in the glycerol oxidation reaction.
