The impregnation of H5PV2Mo10O40 polyoxometalate onto MCM-41 and amino-modified MCM-41 materials provided mesoporous active catalysts with large surface areas for aerobic hydrocarbon oxidation using isobutyraldehyde as a reducing agent. The results of the oxidation of alkenes and alkanes gave product selectivities similar to those observed in the corresponding homogeneous reaction although catalytic activity was somewhat reduced. Under appropriate experimental conditions there was no leaching and the solid catalyst could be recovered and reused without loss in activity.
