General description

Benzyl alcohol, an aromatic alcohol, is widely used in cosmetics and hair dyes. It undergoes oxidation in the absence of solvent catalyzed by Pd catalysts supported on TiO2 functionalized with various amounts of 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES).

Application

Benzyl alcohol may be used in the preparation of benzoic acid, via oxidation.
