New TEMPO containing polymers for all polymeric oxidation procedure

2,2,6,6-Tetramethylpiperidine 1-oxyl (TEMPO) is a versatile compound which is used mainly in organic oxidation reactions and organic battery applications. Incorporating TEMPO into a polymer could provide many applications into its repertoire. In this study, new polymeric TEMPO derivatives are synthesized and characterized to be used as catalysts in the presence of another polymer which constitutes N-halamine functionality. These polymeric mixtures were superior since the mixture could easily be separated from the reaction medium by simple filtration and reused in some other oxidation reactions numerous times. In turn, an all polymeric oxidation method was developed for oxidation of primary alcohols.
