This review describes recent development in the aerobic oxidation of amines. A variety of ruthenium catalysts have shown
excellent activity for the aerobic oxidation of amines. Several gold and copper catalysts are also effective for this reaction. Other metalcontaining
complexes are revealed to be active catalysts and an enzyme is also investigated for this oxidation. Meanwhile, various
supports have been explored for this reaction and the availability of various supports with differing physical properties allows chemists to
design and create many catalytic systems.
Keywords: Aerobic oxidation, amines, copper, gold, molecular oxygen, ruthenium.
