Cationic palladium(ii) complexes as catalysts for the oxidation of terminal olefins to methyl ketones using hydrogen peroxide

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ligated Pd(II) complexes have been studied for the catalytic oxidation of terminal olefins to their corresponding methyl ketones. The method uses aqueous hydrogen peroxide as the terminal oxidant; a sustainable and readily accessible oxidant. The choice of ligand, counterion and solvent all have a significant effect on catalytic performance and we were able to develop systems which perform well for these challenging oxidations.
