In the last fifteen years intense research efforts have been devoted to developing new environmentally acceptable catalytic methods capable to replace conventional stoichiometric processes with catalytic conversions using metal or organocatalyst coupled to clean oxidants such as O2 or H2O2. The same team has advanced the aerobic route for the oxidation of primary alcohols based on TEMPO the stable radical 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyloxy along with Cu I inexpensive salt, N-methylimidazole and bipyridine,4 to such a level broader scope and functional group tolerance than Pd-catalyzed aerobic oxidation that the latter homogeneous protocol is now employed in the pharmaceutical industry.

Treaties5 and reviews2 are regularly published, and conferences6 periodically organized on the topic of alcohol selective oxidation, while research continues to flourish. Yet, writing at the end of the s first decade,10 Arends and Sheldon were surprised to find out that mainstream undergraduate organic chemistry textbooks11 continued to recommend classical oxidation methods using stoichiometric amounts of highly toxic inorganic oxidants such as chromium VI , Ru IV and Mn VII reagents, or less toxic but certainly non green organic oxidants such as DMSO Swern oxidation or hypervalent iodine Dess-Martin periodinane.
Efficient heterogeneously catalyzed processes, indeed, are especially important from the viewpoint of practical application, as they require no further product purification and consequent disposal cost of harmful waste. Furthermore, advanced solid catalysts can be adapted to continuous processes, which will form a central technology of forthcoming synthetic organic chemistry.
In this study we identify the main advantages and limitations of selected practical methods emerged in the last decade, and the challenges required to conclusively end the era of industrial alcohol oxidation carried out with toxic reagents in toxic organic solvent. The active sites comprised of Pd II atomic centres of metastable surface PdO circled in the scanning high-resolution high-angle annular dark-field TEM image in a 0.
The catalyst, however, was not commercialized. This outcome might be linked to the serious safety hazards posed by the highly exothermic oxidative dehydrogenation reaction with pure O2 in the presence of easily flammable organic solvent, especially if the reaction is performed on a large-scale in a batch reactor as is almost invariably found in fine chemical manufacture. The other employs the flow microreactor technology as a means to control the exotherm and prevent the formation of explosive mixtures.

The former approach has been independently developed by, among others, the groups of Poliakoff22 and Tsang23 in the UK, Neumann in Israel,24 Baiker in Switzerland,25 and Campestrini, with some of us, in Italy. The method is similar to the use of H2O2 in association with sol-gel entrapped TPAP tetra-n-propylammonium perruthenate in the catalytic oxidation of alcohols to carbonyls at room temperature. Showing the practical relevance of the new process, indeed, Cao's team adapted the optimized reaction conditions 0. Comprised of TEMPO moieties encapsulated within the huge internal porosity of the organosilica SiliaCat matrix several hundreds m2 g-1 ,42 the catalyst shows superior performance with respect to both homogeneous and silica-entrapped TEMPO.
Such enhanced stability is due to both the sol-gel encapsulation within the inner solgel cage Figure 2 which protects and stabilizes the delicate nitroxyl radical from quenching interactions between neighboring functional groups,46 as well as to the organic modification of the silica matrix which greatly stabilizes the silica structure in the alkaline environment of the Anelli-Montanari reaction.
This sol-gel catalyst typically has 0.
Getting back to SiliaCat TEMPO the open mesoporous structure of the organosilica amorphous matrix ensures fast diffusion in and out of the hybrid silica. This, coupled to the pronounced physical and mechanical stability of the glassy organosilica matrix, makes the SiliaCat catalyst ideally suited for fast continuous oxidative conversions exploiting the rapid heat and mass transfer of reactions in continuous-flow microreactors. Table 1. Furthermore, the reaction under flow can be performed at room temperature, and does not require the use of corroding KBr as co-catalyst.

The biphasic reaction is carried out in EtOAc, for 1 h at room temperature. The authors concluded that an heterogeneous flow-integrated process for producing valued dialdehyde 2,5-diformylfuran over SiliaCat TEMPO may be easily envisaged. At least two classes of reliable, versatile and cost-effective heterogeneously catalyzed methods are currently available. The second relies on gold-based catalysis with aqueous H2O2 as terminal oxidant.

Both are suitable for scale-up to the large-scale required by industrial processes. The polyolefin and the organosilica matrix of the former catalysts present unique advantages in terms of thermal, mechanical and chemical stability. Furthermore, functionalized organosilica of huge mesoporosity, narrow particle size distribution and consistently high loading not swelling in aqueous, organic and biphasic system, can be successfully applied in continuous conversions selectively affording high yields of valued carbonyls at unprecedented high rate.
Evaluating the feasibility of gold-based syntheses in the fine chemical industry, Cao recently suggested51 that, contrary to supported nanoparticles NPs of platinum-group metals PGMs: Pd, Pt, Ru, Rh and Ir which are essential to a wide variety of commercially important processes,52 gold is considerably more abundant tonnes of gold mined in , against an overall tonnes for PGMs , whereas in general supported gold NPs exhibit reactivity far superior to traditional PGM catalysts.
As the fine and speciality chemical industry and its main customer, the pharmaceutical industry, move towards green and sustainable chemistry,56 this study will hopefully contribute to accelerate the end of obsolescent industrial oxidation era when carbonyls and carboxylic acids obtained from alcohols were synthesized using large amounts of toxic oxidants and toxic organic solvent.
