Abstract

Cyclohexanone can be one-step synthesized from benzene catalyzed by a ruthenium diaminodiphosphine complex with 65% selectivity (35% phenol as by-product) and TOF = 63 h-1 at 130°C and 5 MPa (O 2/H2 = 1) pressure. chemical equation presented This shows that hydroxylation (oxidation) and hydrogenation (reduction), which normally required totally noncompatible conditions and catalysts, can proceed in a "one-pot" manner by using one metal complex catalyst.
