|Abstract:||The di(ethylthio)ethane palladium (A) and di(ethylthio)propane palladium (B) complexes have been immobilized on the surface of silica gel and these catalyst systems are shown to serve as effective supported Pd catalysts for cyclohexane oxidation with O2 under solvent free condition. The supported catalyst A provides best results (overall ca. 16.2% conversion, with a selectivity of 72 or 24% for cyclohexanol or cyclohexanone, respectively, which are further promoted in the presence of 2-pyrazinecarboxylic acid which acts as a co-catalyst (overall ca. 21.2% conversion). © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.|
