Vanadium-scorpionate Catalysed Oxidations

Vanadium-scorpionate catalysed oxidation reactions of industrially significant organic compounds, namely hydrocarbons, are addressed in this chapter. They concern the oxidations of alkanes and p-xylene, and the carboxylation of alkanes. Some of the catalytic systems are homogeneous, whereas others involve vanadium scorpionates immobilised on solid supports. Unconventional oxidation conditions of sustainable significance, including the use of microwave irradiation, are overviewed with recently achieved developments.
