Aerobic oxidation of alcohols in the liquid phase proceeded smoothly in the presence of nanoporous gold catalyst. The catalyst is reusable multiple times without leaching and loss of the catalytic activity. The reaction was applied successfully to a flow system. Adsorptions of O2 and 1-phenylethanol into the AuNPore were confirmed by TDS analysis.
