The application of silica-supported TEMPO as a recyclable catalyst in the A
nelli oxidation of alcohols is reported. The catalyst is easily obtained in
a one-step reductive amination procedure starting from a commercially avai
lable aminopropyl-functionalized silica. Details of the synthesis of the su
pported catalyst and its analysis by MAS NMR are presented. Various alcohol
oxidations according to the Anelli protocol have been carried out and the
stability of the applied silica-supported TEMPO has been studied.
