A resin-immobilized CuO nanocomposite was prepared by the treatment of a cationic exchange resin (SERALITE-SRC-120) with CuSO4, followed by the reduction with an ­alkaline solution of cyclodextrin. The CuO nanocomposite catalyzed the aerobic oxidation of neat primary alcohols under refluxing conditions to give the corresponding aldehydes in up to 95% yield (9 examples).
