Abstract

A series of [Pd(NHC)(PR3)] complexes quantitatively form [Pd(eta(2)-O-2)(NHC)(PR3)] products when submitted to an dioxygen atmosphere. Synthetic details and structural features of these Pd-peroxo complexes are described. The palladium compounds were found to be efficient catalysts in the oxidation of alcohols into corresponding carbonyl compounds using O-2 or air as oxidant. Reactions proceed at low catalyst loadings with a wide range of alcohols.
