VO(acac)2 catalyzes the oxidation of aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes to the corresponding acids efficiently and selectively in the presence of hydrogen peroxide as an oxidant. This method offers functional-group compatibility, easy workup procedure, and a short reaction time. The performance of titania-supported VO(acac)2 in the oxidation of aldehydes was also investigated.
