Graphical Abstract:


An efficient and selective oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes in high yield in the absence of a base and co-catalyst using a newly synthesized water-soluble heterobimetallic complex [CuZn(bz)3(bpy)2]BF4 has been developed. No appreciable reduction in aldehyde yield occurred even after five recycles.

Keywords: Alcohol, aldehydes, [CuZn (bz)3(bpy)2]BF4, 1H and 13C NMR, H2O2, selective oxidation.
