Method for Producing Carboxylic Acids By Oxidative Cleavage of Unsaturated Compounds
The invention provides a method of oxidative cleavage of an unsaturated carbon-carbon bond, said method comprising contacting a reactant molecule containing a carbon-carbon unsaturated bond with a catalytic system comprising (i) either a mixture of tungstate salt and tungstic acid or a mixture of a molybdate salt and molybdic acid; (ii) an aqueous solution of dihydrogen peroxide; (iii) a phase-transfer catalyst; and (iv) a carboxylic acid.
