Nonclassical oxygen atom transfer reactions of oxomolybdenum(vi) bis(catecholate)

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mechanistic studies indicate that the oxomolybdenum(VI) bis(3,5-di-tert-butylcatecholate) fragment deoxygenates pyridine-N-oxides in a reaction where the oxygen is delivered to molybdenum but the electrons for substrate reduction are drawn from the bound catecholate ligands, forming 3,5-di-tert-butyl-1,2-benzoquinone.
