The purpose of this work was to investigate the possibility of utilizing metalloporphyrins as the catalysts for aerobic oxidation of alcohols, We proposed to investigate the catalytic activity of the metalloporphyrins in solution and in a polymer-supported form. The porous polymer was anticipated to concentrate substrates, especially in the inflammable fluorinated solvents. Since oxygen solubility in fluorinated solvent is several times higher than in nonfluorous organic solvents, such systems were expected to be good media for aerobic oxidations.
