Hydroperoxidations of Alkenes using Cobalt Picolinate Catalysts

Zulema Peralta-Neel, K. A. Woerpel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hydroperoxides were synthesized in one step from various alkenes using Co(pic)2as the catalyst with molecular oxygen and tetramethyldisiloxane (TMDSO). The hydration product could be obtained using a modified catalyst, Co(3-mepic)2, with molecular oxygen and phenylsilane. Formation of hydroperoxides occurred through a rapid Co-O bond metathesis of a peroxycobalt compound with isopropanol.
