Facile synthesis of polyoxometalate supported on magnetic graphene oxide as a hybrid catalyst for efficient oxidation of aldehydes

Sci Rep. 2022 Nov 2;12(1):18491. doi: 10.1038/s41598-022-21991-x.


In the present study, Anderson-type polyoxometalate [N(C4H9)4] [FeMo6O18(OH)6] (FeMo6) was immobilized on amino-modified magnetic graphene oxide and employed as a new hybrid catalyst in oxidation of aldehydes to carboxylic acids. The synthesized hybrid catalyst Fe3O4/GO/[FeMo6] was characterized using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), scanning electron microscopies (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM), energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), Raman spectroscopy and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). The results indicated that our catalyst was quite active in oxidizing the aldehydes to their corresponding carboxylic acids in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. The synthesized catalyst can be easily separated from the reaction medium and reused for six consecutive runs without a significant reduction in reaction efficiency.
