Catalytic Oxidation of Benzyl Alcohol to Benzaldehyde with Fe/Cu-Cross-Linked Montmorillonite


Article Preview

The Fe/Cu-cross-linked montmorillonite catalysts were synthesized with Linan Na-Mont and characterized by BET, SEM, XRD. Liquid-phase oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde by hydrogen peroxide over Fe/Cu-PILC catalyst in the absence of solvent has been thoroughly investigated. The influence of reaction conditions has also been studied. The results show that Fe/Cu(100)-PILC has excellent activity and reusability in the process. The active oxygen species in the reaction is from the absorbed oxygen of Fe/Cu-PILC.
