The selective oxidation of cyclopentene to cyclopentanone catalyzed by Pd(CH3COO)2-NPMoV was investigated under atmospheric oxygen in aqueous acetonitrile acidified by CH3SO3H. It was shown that the conversion of cyclopentene and the yield of cyclopentanone was nearly 100% and 94.6%, respectively, under the optimized reaction condition.
