CHAPTER 12: Oxidation Reactions with NHC Metal Complexes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

An overview of oxidative reactions promoted by N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) metal complexes is presented. Rather than attempting to provide a comprehensive review, key systems and recent developments are laid out, with special attention given to mechanistic aspects. Specifically, O2 activation by metal carbene complexes is covered, followed by alcohol oxidation, Wacker-type reactions and oxidative cleavage of alkenes, and alkane as well as arene oxidations proceeding via C-H activation.
