Oxidation of Benzaldehyde to Benzoic Acid with Aqueous Hydrogen Peroxide over Dodecatungstophosphoric Acid
Dodecatungstophosphoric acid was synthesized and used as catalyst for oxidation of benzaldehyde to benzoic acid with aqueous hydrogen peroxide. The effect of various catalytic reaction parameters including time, temperatures, and the amount of catalyst on the yield of benzoic acid was investigated in details. The results indicated that the as-prepared sample was in the keggin-type structure and the optimal parameters under the reaction conditions were as follows: 0.5 g of catalyst, reacted at 80 C for 5 h.
