Ru-exchanged Supported 12-tungstophosphoric Acid for Selective Liquid Phase Aerobic Oxidation of Styrene under Solvent-free Conditions
Pages 82-87 (6)
Ru3+-exchanged supported 12-tungstophosphoric acid was synthesized, characterized and used for solvent-free
liquid phase aerobic oxidation of styrene under mild reaction conditions. The present catalyst gives 100 % conversion of
styrene with >99 % selectivity for benzaldehyde. The catalyst can also be regenerated and reused.
