C–H activation in strongly acidic media. The co-catalytic effect of the reaction medium

Author affiliations

Abstract

Quantum mechanical (QM) results are used to establish the role of sulfuric acid solvent in facilitating the reaction between PtII(bpym)Cl2 (bpym = 2,2′-bipyrimidinyl) and methane; coordination of methane to the platinum catalyst is found to be catalyzed by the acidic medium.
