Oxidation catalysis is reviewed with emphasis on radical versus nonradical pathways, autoxidation, and mechanistic studies. Bioinorganic model catalysts are discussed, including the distinction between monooxygenase and dioxygenase pathways. Some organic synthetic applications as well as applications to green chemistry are discussed. Finally some organometallic oxidation catalysts are discussed.
