Hazardous chemistry: oxidation with oxygen


We use oxygen at large scale as a versatile oxidative agent.

Singlet oxygen affords a high yield of organic peroxides that find applications in various areas.

Triplet oxygen is used for the oxidation of alkenes to ketones (Wacker-Tsuji oxidation), of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones and many other reactions such as the α-hydroxylation of carbonyl derivatives.

Oxidation with oxygen produces little waste through high atom efficiency and we can use either air or pure oxygen in our processes.
