Title: Selective oxidation of rhodinol to citral using H{sub 2}O{sub 2}-platinum black system under microwave irradiation

The oxidation method utilising H{sub 2}O{sub 2}-Pt black system was successfully adapted in the oxidation of rhodinol which is a mixture form of geraniol and citronellol. This green oxidation found to be selectively converted geraniol to citral using conventional method. The implementation of microwave irradiation (175 Watt, 90°C, 30 mins) and a higher molar of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} further improved the conversion rate (72.6%) and selectivity (81%) as compared to the conventional method.
