This paper reports studies of factors affecting air oxidation of (2)-a-pinene catalysed by Co(II)±pyridine complexes without a concomitant co-oxidant. Observations are presented about the nature and amount of the catalyst, reaction temperature, oxygen ¯ow and solvent vs. non-solvent conditions. In addition, attention has been paid to the in¯uence of added base or acid, and identification of side products.
