Graphical Abstract:


The oxidation of aldehydes is an efficient methodology for the synthesis of carboxylic acids. Herein we hope to report a simple, efficient and recyclable protocol for aerobic oxidation of aldehydes to carboxylic acid by using C3N4 supported silver nanoparticles (Ag/C3N4) as a catalyst in aqueous solution under mild conditions. Under standard conditions, the corresponding carboxylic acids can be obtained in good to excellent yields. In addition, Ag/C3N4 is convenient for recovery and could be reused three times with satisfactory yields.

Keywords: Ag/C3N4, silver nanoparticles, aerobic oxidation, aldehydes, carboxylic acids, water.
