Selective CH oxidation: A novel class of PNNP–RuII complexes is prepared and characterized. These complexes are air stable and easy to handle and show significant catalytic activity in the direct CH oxidation of aryl alkanes by using tert-butylhydroperoxide as the reoxidant. Several functionalized ketones are prepared, which exemplifies the synthetically useful functional group tolerance of this method.
