The catalytic oxidation of alcohols with hydrogen peroxide over copper hydroxyphosphate Cu_2(OH)PO_4 was studied. The catalytic data show that catalyst Cu_2(OH)PO_4 is very active for the oxidation of alcohols, especially for α alcohols. Some important factors associated with the catalytic activity and selectivity have been investigated extensively.
