Aerobic liquid-phase oxidation of p-xylene over metalloporphyrins

The five metalloporphyrins with different metal nuclei were synthesized, and their catalytic aerobic liquid-phase oxidations of p-xylene into p-toluic acid, p-toluic aldehyde and terephthalic acid using a low concentration of acetic acid as solvent without any halide additives, were studied
