Hybrid compounds assembled from copper-triazole complex and polyoxometalate acid as advanced catalysts for olefins oxidation with oxygen

Abstract

Two hybrid compounds, namely [CuI4(3atrz)4][PMoVI10MoVO40] (1) and [CuI6(3atrz)6][PMo12O40]2 (2), were synthesized through hydrothermal reactions of 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (3atrz), phosphomolybdic acid (PMA) and appropriate copper salts. Crystal structure analysis reveals that compound 1 contains one-dimension Cu-3atrz chains. The unit of compound 2 contains a double calyx[3]arene-shaped hexamer, which are composed of six two-coordinated CuI atoms and six 3atrz ligands. Both of the compounds 1 and 2 present three-dimension hybrid structure, which are bulit by self-assembly of Cu-3atrz clusters and Keggin-type PMA units. The resultant hybrid compounds can act as highly efficient heterogeneous catalysts for the selective oxidation of olefins with molecular oxygen as oxidant in the presence of trace amount of tert-butyl hydroperoxide (t-BuOOH). Their excellent catalytic properties can be mainly attributed to the existence of stabilized CuI complexes with appropriate chemical environment and space structure, which can interact with t-BuOOH to form catalytic sites for the direct activation of O2. This work demonstrates that the hybrid compounds assembled from copper-3atrz complexes and polyoxometallate acid may have great potential in molecular O2-mediated catalytic oxidation reactions, which can certainly build a platform for a deep insight into the biologically relevant catalytic oxidation processes.
