Abstract

Metal-free oxidation of indoline using molecular oxygen as an oxidant was investigated. Among various carbon-based catalysts, we found that reduced graphene oxide (rGO) was the most active. Superoxide radical was formed in the course of the reaction. Although graphene oxide (GO) did not function as a catalyst, rGO could be recycled at least 5 times without any structural change.
