Synthesis, Characterization and Application Polystyrene-Bound Manganese Complexes
New series polymer-bounded manganese complexes were synthesized and their potential structure was investigated. Their application in the oxidation of cumene, by atmospheric pressure of molecular oxygen in the absence of solvent catalyzed by polystyrene-bound-Mn-L (where L=2,2’-bipyridine and 1,10-phenanthroline) complexes without the use of any special oxidant or coreductant, were studied. The oxidation products 2-phenyl-2-propanol and 2-phenylpropylaldehyde were produced in 41% to 71% yield and the selectivity to total alcohol and aldehyde was 100%.
