Abstract: Catalytic allylic alcohol oxidation to aldehydes is an industrial process that necessitates chemoselectivity. Surface PdO (on Pd) enables this transformation but does not represent optimal metal utilisation. Here we report a facile synthesis route to produce isolated surface PdO catalytic sites on an earth-abundant metal (NiO) for cinnamyl alcohol oxidation.
