Abstract

Benzyl alcohol was oxidized by aqueous sodium hypochlorite in a phase transfer catalysis reaction catalyzed by quaternary ammonium salts. Two products were obtained, benzaldehyde and benzyl benzoate. The concentration of the organic phase and the pH of the aqueous phase affected the product distribution: a dilute organic phase and low pH favored benzaldehyde as a product, whereas a concentrated organic phase and high pH favored benzyl benzoate as a product.
