Abstract: During the autoxidation of cyclohexane, abstraction of the alpha H-atom of the hydroperoxide product by chain-carrying peroxyl radicals produces both the desired alcohol and ketone products, as well as the majority of by-products. Rationalizing the impact of: this reaction, one should aim for a (catalytic) destruction of this hydroperoxide without the intervention of peroxyl chain-carriers. Starting from these new insights in the molecular mechanism, attempts for rational catalyst design are initiated.
