A new effective protocol for oxidation of cyclohexane in acetonitrile at 40 °C and atmospheric pressure into cyclohexanol, cyclohexanone and cyclohexyl-hydroperoxide using H2O2 as sustainable oxidant, vanadyl(IV)-acetylacetonate as starting catalyst, oxalic acid and glyoxal as activating additives is presented with some reaction mechanism proposals.
