Bo Zhu, Zhong Ling Lang, Li Kai Yan, Muhammad Ramzan Saeed Ashraf Janjua and Zhong Min Su A comparative DFT study on the mechanism of olefin epoxidation catalyzed by substituted binuclear peroxotungstates ([SeO4WO(O2)2MO(O2)2]n− (M = TiIV, VV, TaV, MoVI, WVI, TcVII, and ReVII)) International Journal of Quantum Chemistry 114
Olefins epoxidation is a key reaction in organic synthesis. Peroxo-metallocomplexes are recognized to yield high catalytic activity for this reaction. DFT calculations provide a unique insight into the reaction mechanism on metal-based catalysts, and in particular, on the role of the transition metal in controlling the Lewis acidity and oxygen transfer reactivity of the peroxo-complexes.
