Designing a new porous nanomaterial for eco-friendly catalytic reactions is very challenging. Here, a new crystalline microporous oxyfluorinated titanium phosphate material (TIPO-1) has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions in the absence of any structure directing agent. The triclinic crystalline phase with the unit cell parameters a=7.962Å, b=10.006Å, c=13.979Å, α=96.921°, β=95.851° and γ=93.760° has been indexed for TIPO-1 and it has been characterized through powder X-ray diffraction, nitrogen adsorption/desorption, XPS, FT-IR, 31P MAS NMR spectroscopy, UHR-TEM, FE-SEM and TGA/DTA analysis. The material exhibited excellent catalytic activity in liquid phase partial oxidation of cyclohexanone to adipic acid (up to 92% conversion) in the presence of aqueous H2O2 as oxidant together with value added side products like 1,6-hexandial and ε-caprolactone for reactions in different solvents. The material showed excellent recycling efficiency for six consecutive reaction cycles without any significant loss in catalytic activity.
