Abstract: Heterogeneous oxidation of liquid cyclohexane with molecular oxygen was carried out in a solvent-free system initiated by various catalysts and additives. Among those catalysts tested, the Co3O4 catalyst prepared by a simple calcination at 550 °C was relatively active for the oxidation of cyclohexane to KA-oil (a mixture of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol), and could achieve about 9.2 mol% conversion of cyclohexane and 92.7 % selectivity of KA-oil at 130 °C under the pressure of 1.0 MPa O2 for 2 h, comparable to those of Co3O4 nanocrystals and Co/ZSM-5. This would help to widen the scope of the catalysts available for the titled oxidation. The use of peroxides and NHPI as the initiators without any catalyst could lead to the occurrence of non-catalytic oxidation of cyclohexane as well.
