Abstract

A survey is given of the catalytic methods potentially available for the production of adipic acid by the oxidation of readily available hydrocarbon precursors under environmentally benign conditions. Encouraging results are reported using H2O2 as oxidant and microporous FeAlPO-5 as catalyst at moderate temperatures.
