Ru-based oxidation catalysis

Author affiliations


Ranging from the oxidative conversion of water to O2 to the elegant hydroxylation of olefins and to oxidative dehydrogenation of alcohols Ru-mediated oxidations are finding increasing application due to the unique properties of this extremely versatile transition metal, whose oxidation state can vary from −II to +VIII. Covering recent developments in both homogeneously and heterogeneously catalysed oxidations (in liquid-phase as well as in novel reaction media), this tutorial review aims to provide investigators with a general picture of the chemical and structural origins of the excellent performance of many ruthenium catalysts and to promote further advancement that, it is envisaged, will soon benefit society at large.
