Catalytic oxidation of alkanes by iron bispidine complexes and dioxygen: oxygen activation versus autoxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Organic substrates (specifically cis-1,2-dimethylcyclohexane, DMCH) are oxidized by O2 in the presence of iron(II)–bispidine complexes. It is shown that this oxidation reaction is not based on O2 activation by the nonheme iron catalysts as in Nature but due to a radical-based initiation, followed by a radical- and ferryl-based catalytic reaction.
