The synthesis of adipic acid through aerobic oxidative cleavage of trans-1,2-cyclohexanediol is investigated under basic and acid conditions. In the former case, supported Ru(OH)3 catalysts are active but poorly selective, owing to side reactions starting from the key reaction intermediate 1,2-cyclohexanedione. Under acidic conditions, Keggin polyoxometalates are selective to adipic acid, but this then reacts with the unconverted reactant to yield esters.
