Abstract: The effect of the free radical initiators 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-1-naphthylhydroperoxide and 2,2'-azobis(2-methylpropionitrile) on the oxidation of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetraline) by dioxygen catalyzed by Cr(III), Mn(III), Fe(III), Co(II), Co(III) and Cu(II) 2,4-pentanedionates (acac) has been investigated. It has been found that the addition of a free radical initiator can increase the rate of catalyzed oxidation or decrease it. Which effect will operate depends on the kind of the catalyzing transition …
