Oxidation mediated by hydrogen peroxide needs to be accelerate by approrpiate catalyst in order to be completed in a reasonable reaction time. As a part of our investigation in the use of organoselenium cataysts in bio-mimetic oxidative protocol we reported here some preliminary results on the oxidation of benzyl alcohol into the corresponding benzoic acid.
