Nizova, Galina V. ; Süss-Fink, Georg ; Shulpin, Georgiy B.

In: Chemical Communications, 1997, p. 397-398

Methane is oxidized by air in acetonitrile solution to give methyl hydroperoxide (easily reduced to methanol), formaldehyde and formic acid in the presence of [NBu4]VO3–pyrazine-2-carboxylic acid as the catalyst and H2O2 as a promoter. Plus
