A non-metal catalytic method for the aerobic conversion of primary alcohols to aromatic nitriles via a single-step operation was developed. A series of primary benzyl alcohols underwent this transformation to give the targeted products in moderate to high yields under the catalysis of TEMPO/ HNO3.

Keywords: Alcohols, nitriles, catalysis, oxygen, oxidation, non-metal.
