Abstract:  An environmentallly friendly, homogeneous catalytic method for the oxidation of alcohols in aqueous medium is described. The copper(II) complex, [Cu(4-CNpy)2Cl2]n, has been prepared in excellent yield and characterized by the single crystal X-ray diffraction technique. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/n with unit cell parameters a = 3.589(3)Å, b = 25.903(6) Å, c = 7.116(1)Å, β = 96.05(4)°, V = 657.9(6) Å3, and Z = 2. The crystal structure refinement yields final R1 = 0.0604, wR2 = 0.1577 and GooF = 1.055 for all 1423 unique reflections and 105 L.S. parameters. The results of crystal structure analysis show that the copper(II) compound is a one dimensional coordination polymer containing chloride ions as the bridging ligands forming one weak [Cu-Cl = 2.870(2) Å] and one strong [Cu-Cl = 2.333(1) Å] coordination bond with copper(II) centres. The Cu(II) complex (2 mol%) shows very good catalytic activity towards oxidation of alcohols under homogeneous condition using aqueous TBHP as the oxidant in H2O:MeCN (5:1 v/v). Products have been isolated in moderate to high yields either as aldehydes or ketones using the above green protocol.
