Dalton Communication: Crystal Structure and Oxo-transfer Properties of [NH₄]₂[WᵛᴵO₂{O₂CC(S)Ph₂}₂]

Abstract

The complex [NH4]2[WVIO2O 2CC(S)Ph22] is the first example of a non-dithiolene tungsten complex capable of oxidising benzoin to benzil in methanol; the reduced complex product formed, presumably a monomeric WVIO species, was reoxidised with nitrate ions, regenerating the starting WVIO2 complex which then acts as a true homogeneous catalyst.
