Heterogeneous catalytic aerobic oxidation methods represent a near-ideal approach for the conversion of primary alcohols to carboxylic acids. Here, we report that a heterogeneous catalyst composed of Pd, Bi, and Te supported on activated carbon is highly effective for the oxidation of diverse benzylic and aliphatic primary alcohols, including 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (HMF) and substrates bearing heterocycles and other important functional groups. In many cases, the desired carboxylic acid product is obtained in >90% yield. Additionally, the catalyst has been demonstrated in a continuous-flow packed-bed reactor for the oxidation of benzyl alcohol, achieving near-quantitative yield while undergoing over 30 000 turnovers.
