Up-tempo catalysis: The nitroxyl radical 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl (TEMPO) supported on the mesoporous material SBA-15 provides a highly stable and reusable catalyst (1) for the aerobic oxidation of primary, secondary, and highly hindered alcohols. The catalyst can be recovered and reused in at least another 14 reaction cycles.
