Abstract

The effect of Lewis acids on the catalytic activity of [Mn2(μ-O)3(TMTACN)2](PF6)2 in the epoxidation of styrenes using hydrogen peroxide as the oxidant has shown that the addition of Sc(OTf)3 at low catalytic loading results in a very significant increase in the efficiency of the catalyst and a reduction of the reaction time to only 3 minutes in most cases.
