Platinum complexes of cationic ligands for the aerobic oxidation of “inert” perfluoro-substituted alcohols

Author affiliations

Abstract

Trifluoroethanol was oxidized with O2 to trifluoroethyl trifluoracetate (>98% selectivity) using PtII(dppz)Cl2 as a catalyst in the presence of H2SO4; PtII(phen)Cl2 was inactive. Kinetic isotope effects suggest the C–H bond activation as the rate determining step and DFT calculations showed different frontier orbitals for PtII(dppz) and PtII(phen)-based catalysts.
