Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

A recyclable gold catalyst is prepared by immobilization of perfluoro-tagged gold nanoparticles on fluorous silica gel and used in the oxidation of alcohols as well as in domino oxidation/cyclization processes and in the direct oxidative conversion of alcohols to esters under an oxygen atmosphere. The oxidation is also possible under solvent-free conditions.
