In this study, N-hydroxyphthalimide (NHPI) was successfully immobilized on functionalized NaY nano-zeolite. As a new recoverable catalyst, the obtained NHPI immobilized on NaY nano-zeolite was characterized by FT-IR, XRD, TGA, BET, TEM and FESEM-EDX analyzes. The prepared catalyst exhibited high selectivity for oxidation of various hydrocarbons and benzyl alcohols in the presence of hydrogen peroxide as oxidant. The catalyst can be readily separated from the reaction mixture and reused several times without significant loss of catalytic activity.
