Nanocell type Ru@quinone core-shell catalyst for selective oxidation of alcohols to carbonyl compounds

Abstract : Selective aerobic oxidation of alcohols to corresponding carbonyl compounds is one of the most important challenges in the modern chemical industry. The existing metal based heterogeneous catalysts provide low selectivity due to over-oxidation of aldehydes to acids and esters. We have found that coating of Ru nanoparticles by disodium anthraquinone-2,6-disulfonate (SQ) results in selective oxidation of aliphatic, unsaturated and aromatic alcohols to aldehydes. Analysis of core-shell Ru@SQ catalyst shows strong interaction between Ru and SQ leading to change of their electronic state and structure. In-situ study of alcohol oxidation using FTIR and electrochemistry indicates on hydrogen abstraction by shell quinone species with hydrogen transfer by quinone to Ru core for water generation. Thus, the catalyst behavior mimics nano-electrocell by separation of oxidation reaction over quinone and reduction of oxygen over Ru providing higher selectivity to aldehyde.
