A synergistic effect in the combination of H2O2, FeAPO-5 and NaBr for selective oxidation of benzyl alcohols
The H2O2/FeAPO-5/NaBr combination has been found to be active in the oxidation of benzyl alcohols. The remarkably different activity results obtained with the H2O2/FeAPO-5/NaBr, the H2O2/FeAPO-5 and the H2O2/NaBr confirm the existence of a strongly synergistic effect in the ternary reaction system of H2O2, FeAPO-5 and NaBr, leading to a significantly enhanced conversion of benzyl alcohols under mild reaction conditions.
