Green chemistry is strongly influencing all aspects of chemical research and oxidation reactions in particular are witnessing a shift from the use of toxic and less atom efficient oxidants to the preferred employment of hydrogen peroxide and molecular oxygen. Recent developments in the field span from the discovery of more efficient metal catalysts characterized by higher turnovers or selectivities (especially enantioselectivity), to the advent of more economic and less toxic metal catalysts, to the replacement of organic solvents with water as reaction medium and to the implementation of efficient techniques to ensure simple catalyst recycling. The present contribution adequately covers all the above subjects, enriching the discussion with recent examples of timely and cutting edge catalytic systems characterized by high degree of novelty and possible future developments.
