Abstract

Based on the analysis of the mechanism of aerobic oxidation of alcohols using Ru(NO)-salen catalyst, we designed a new complex, Ru(PPh3)(OH)-salen 3, which was proved to be an excellent catalyst for chemoselective aerobic oxidation of primary alcohols to the aldehydes in the presence of secondary alcohols under ambient and non-irradiated conditions. Complex 3 was also successfully applied to the oxidation of 1-phenyl-1,n-diols to the lactols or the n-hydroxy aldehyde. It is of note that selective oxidation of primary alcohols was achieved even in the presence of activated secondary alcohols.
