Cost-effective and widely applicable protocols for controlled and predictably selective oxidation of methyl-/alkylarenes to corresponding value-added carbonyls have been developed, using a surfactant-based oxodiperoxo molybdenum catalyst in water and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as an environmentally benign green oxidant without any external base, additive, or cocatalyst.
