From an economical and environmental point of view the use of molecular oxygen as an oxidant has attracted considerable attention. A variety of metal complexes are known which allow efficient and selective oxidations of alcohols to the corresponding carbonyl compounds with molecular oxygen or air. Often the metal-based catalysts are used together with additives to activate the catalyst or facilitate electron or hydrogen transfer reactions.
