Dendrimers as an Efficient Catalyst for the Oxidation of Multi Substituted Alcohols

Imtiyaz Rasool P and Athar Adil H

A new dendrimeric ligand (L) was synthesized by the Michael addition of ethylenediamine to methyl methacrylate. The prepared ligand was complexed Cu (II) ions, The ligand and its complex were characterized by elemental analysis and spectroscopic studies (FT-IR, UV-Vis, 1 H NMR and ESI-MS). Square pyramidal geometry was proposed for copper complexes, on the basis of UV-Vis spectroscopic data and molar conductance measurements. The catalytic applications of ligand metal complex were recorded for the oxidation of cyclohexanol, benzyl alcohol, 1-phenyethanol, propanol, respectively and eco-friendly, non-toxic hydrogen peroxide.
