Novel, efficient, and recyclable bifunctional catalysts bearing ionic liquid supported (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-yl)oxyl (TEMPO) and iodoarene moieties were developed and used for environmentally benign catalytic oxidation of alcohols. The reactions using peracetic acid as a green and practical co-oxidant afforded the corresponding carbonyl compounds in high yields under mild conditions and convenient work-up. Furthermore, these ionic liquid supported bifunctional catalysts could be simply recovered and reused.
