Doped graphene as a metal-free carbocatalyst for the selective aerobic oxidation of benzylic hydrocarbons, cyclooctane and styrene.


Nitrogen (N)-, boron (B)-, and boron,nitrogen (B,N)-doped graphene (G) act as carbocatalysts, promoting the aerobic oxidation of the benzylic positions of aromatic hydrocarbons and cyclooctane to the corresponding alcohol/ketone mixture with more than 90 % selectivity. The most active material was the co-doped (B,N)G, which, in the absence of solvent and… (More)
