Bioinspired Mononuclear Transition-Metal Aminopyridine Complexes for Olefin Epoxidation and Molecular Oxygen Activation: Synthesis, Characterization, Catalysis and Mechanistic Studies

Yang, Guang.

Abstract: ABSTRACT This thesis is aimed at developing selective oxidations with environmentally friendly oxidants derived from dioxygen, using biologically relevant 3d-transition metal complexes as catalysts. Specifically, selective olefin epoxidation with hydrogen peroxide and dioxygen activation reactions promoted by mono- and dinuclear transition-metal aminopyridine complexes of manganese (II) ... read more
