Dimeric copper(II) complex of a new Schiff base ligand: effect of morphology on the catalytic oxidation of aromatic alcohol.

An antiferromagnetically coupled, dimeric μ-naphthanoxo bridged copper(II) complex is used heterogeneously to catalyze oxidation of p-chlorobenzylalcohol to aldehyde selectively. PL and PXRD studies reveal that during recycling the catalyst remains essentially intact. However loss of catalytic efficiency upon reuse is in consonance with a loss in morphology as indicated by SEM.
