The present paper employs supported ruthenium nanoparticles alongside cat­alytic quantities of the radical initiator, which are proven to be capable of cyclo­octene oxidation with green conditions, in the absence of solvent, with air as the main oxidant and without sacrificial reductant. The paper examines the effects of a range of radical initiators and how the products are distributed over time. Furthermore, the paper addresses the reaction pathways to the epoxides and allylic alcohol, the latter being the primary by-product, whilst also ana­lysing the impact of the technique of synthesis, reaction time, and various sup­ports. Catalyst activity can be markedly improved by adopting a sol-immobil­i­sation technique to synthesise the catalysts, with retention of selectivity to the epoxide.
