Chromium oxo derivatives (H2CrO4) catalyze the effective oxidation of ethane and other saturated hydrocarbons with hydrogen peroxide or tert-butyl hydroperoxide in an acetonitrile solution at 60degreesC. Alkyl hydroperoxides, ketones (aldehydes), and alcohols are formed as main products. The oxidation of ethane gives ethyl hydroperoxide, acetaldehyde, ethanol, and acetic acid. The turnover frequency reaches 620 h(-1) in this case, and the product yield in terms of H2O2 consumed is 21%.
