The oxidation of 2-methoxymethylthiophene with molecular oxygen in the presence of a cobalt bromide catalyst in the kinetic region at 65–100 °C was investigated. It is shown that the principal products are 2-formylthiophene and methylthiophene-2-carboxylate in a ratio of 1∶2. The composition of the products does not depend on the oxidation temperature and changes as the starting concentration of 2-methoxymethylthiophene and the amount of cobalt bromide catalyst are changed.
