This article reviews recent results on homogeneous aerobic oxidation explored after 1980. The review is ordered in five sections corresponding to the substrates as follows : (i) oxidation of alkenes comprising of epoxidation, carbonylation, cycloaddition of dioxygen, and allylic oxygenation, (ii) oxidation of arenes including oxygenation of aromatic nucleus and oxidative cleavage of catechols, (iii) oxidation of ketones, nitriles, and nitro compounds, (iv) oxygenation of alkanes, and (v) oxidation of alcohols, amines, and divalent sulfur compounds.

Abstract Herein we disclose a novel application of the oxone–acetone combination for the Wacker-type oxidation of indenes and dihydronaphthalenes leading, respectively, to indan-2-ones and 2-tetralones. The amount of the base employed in the reaction seems to switch the reaction path from dioxygenation to Wacker-type oxidation. Control experiments suggest that the reaction is not proceeding via the epoxide route and also that there is no role of trace amounts of metals present in the reagents on...

A kinetic study of the oxidation of benzenecarboxylic acids has been performed in order to clarify the mechanism. The reaction products were oxalic acid and carbon dioxide, along with a trace of acetic acid. The oxidation rate of phthalic acid was proportional to the first order of the molality of phthalic acid, the molality of NaOH, and partial oxygen pressure, respectively; the apparent activation energy was 126 kJ mol−1. These results show that the rate-determining step is a cleavage of the b...

Autoxidation of guaiazulene and 4,6,8-trimethylazulene at 100–120°C in DMF (or HMPA) respectively yielded 25 and 17 separable products, including several known compounds. Most of these new compounds were derivatives of 1,5- and 1,7-azulenequinone, 1H-inden-1-one, naphthoquinone, and benzenoid, or dimeric and trimeric forms; structures of these products were established on the basis of spectroscopic (NMR, UV, IR, and MS) and half-wave potential (E1⁄2) data. 1H NMR (200-MHz) parameters of various ...
