AbstractThis study reports a developed process which is a general and facile method for the oxidation of benzyl alcohol (BnOH) compounds to the benzaldehyde (BA) derivatives, under mild conditions. The oxidation of BnOH species catalyzed by PtNi@SWCNT in toluene (3?ml) at 80?°C under a continuous stream of O2. Single wall carbon nanotube supported PtNi (PtNi@SWCNT) nanoparticles were synthesized using a single-step modified reduction process. The characterization of PtNi@SWCNT nanocatalyst was performed by transmission electron microscope (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), and elemental analysis by ICP-OES. A variety of BnOH compounds were oxidized by the PtNi@SWCNT catalyst and all the expected oxidation products were obtained in high efficiency in 2?hours of reaction time. TLC was used to monitoring the reaction progress, and the products were identified by 1H/13C-NMR analysis.
