Do (pentaarylcyclopentadienyl)molybdenum(VI) dioxo species catalyse alkene epoxidations? Insights from kinetics data

Author affiliations

Abstract

A (perarylcyclopentadienyl)molybdenum(VI) dioxo complex is shown to catalyse epoxidation of cyclooctene by t-butylhydroperoxide, but decomposition to a much more active non-cyclopentadienyl containing catalyst occurs as the reaction proceeds.
