Abstract: In this communication, we describe p-xylene oxidation with molecular oxygen at 373 K and atmospheric pressure using N-hydroxyimide catalysts. p-Xylene conversion was rather high over the first 2 h of reaction and complete by the end of the experiment. The product distribution curves versus reaction time are typical of consecutive reactions. The main intermediate product is p-toluic acid. Peak concentration and the shape of its concentration profile depend heavily on the N-hydroxyimide catalyst used. This effect seems to be related to the NO-H bond dissociation energy (BDE) of the N-hydroxyimides employed.
