A Cu(I)/9-azabicyclo[3.3.1]nonan-3-one N-oxyl (ketoABNO) aerobic catalyst system is highly effective for the oxidation of secondary alcohols, including unactivated aliphatic substrates. The effects of pressure and gas composition on catalyst performance are examined. The radical can be employed at low loadings and is also amenable to immobilisation on to solid supports.
