Nanoscale Palladium Cluster Immobilized on a TiO2 Surface as an Efficient Catalyst for Liquid-phase Wacker Oxidation of Higher Terminal Olefins

A Pd nanocluster immobilized on a TiO2 surface acted as an efficient catalyst for the liquid-phase Wacker oxidation of higher terminal olefins in the presence of water and CuCl2 under an O2 atmosphere.

7) TiO2 was supplied from the Catalysis Society of Japan as JRC-TIO-2 (anatase, BET surface area: 14 m2g?1), and is characterized by its low acidity and basicity compared with other TiO2 reference samples.

8) A typical example for the oxidation of 1-decene catalyzed by the cationic Pd2060/TiO2 is as follows. Into a reaction vessel equipped with a reflux condenser and balloon were placed the cationic Pd2060/TiO2 (0.0394 g, Pd: 0.01 mmol) and CuCl2·2H2O (0.0054 g, 0.03 mmol). After the reaction vessel was filled with O2, N,N-dimethylacetamide (4 mL), H2O (0.5 mL), and 1-decene (0.14 g, 1 mmol) was added. Then, the reaction mixture was vigorously stirred at 80 °C for 2 h. The catalyst was separated by filtration, and GC analysis of the filtrate showed 88% yield of 2-decanone.

10) Absence of O2, H2O, or CuCl2·2H2O resulted in less than a 1% yield of 2-decanone.
