Abstract

original image

Shake it up: Exceptionally well-dispersed supported iron nanoparticles supported on a mesoporous Al-SBA-15 with an unprecedented activity can be prepared by using a simple and efficient dry-milling mechanochemical approach in a planetary ball mill. Extremely low iron loadings are sufficient to provide excellent activities in both, the selective oxidation of benzyl alcohol and the alkylation of toluene with benzyl alcohol.
