Title
Green, selective and swift oxidation of cyclic alcohols to corresponding ketones
Abstract

•Original method to oxidize cyclic alcohols to ketones in few minutes under microwaves.•Efficient and eco-friendly method to oxidize five to eight membered cyclanols.•Use of aqueous H2O2 in the presence of H2WO4 and an ammonium based ionic liquid.•Role of phase transfer agent of the ionic liquid confirmed by the use of Aliquat 336.•94% yield of cyclohexanone in only 2.5 min reaction under microwave irradiations.

Cyclohexanol oxidation to cyclohexanone is an important reaction in both organic chemistry and industry. We propose here an efficient, eco-friendly, and general method for oxidizing five- to eight-membered cyclanols used as model substrates, with aqueous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in the presence of tungstic acid (H2WO4) as a catalyst and an ammonium-based ionic liquid (IL) as a co-catalyst under organic solvent-free conditions. Cyclohexanol was found to be the most reactive of the four tested cyclanols. In addition, the role of the IL as a phase transfer catalyst was confirmed by the use of Aliquat 336 and the kinetic of the reaction was significantly improved under microwave or ultrasonic activation, leading to excellent yields in only a few minutes.
