Benzylic oxidation in the presence of an iron-surfactant nanocomposite catalyst under aqueous conditions is described. A significant reaction rate acceleration in the presence of anionic surfactants was demonstrated. Several benzylic substrates were efficiently transformed to ketones under mild conditions.
