A new catalyst MP8@MIL-101(Cr/Fe), prepared by immobilization of a heme octapeptide, Microperoxidase 8 (MP8), within a mixed metal MOF, MIL-101(Cr/Fe) was shown to catalyze the oxidation of styrene about 3 times more efficiently than MP8 alone wi...

The Mo−H−C agostic interaction in the Mo β/γ-agostomers [CpMo(CO)2(PiPr3)]+ and the Mn−H−C agostic interaction in the Mn α/ϵ-agostomers [(C6H9]Mo(CO)3] were theoretically investigated, and findings on the agostic interaction presented here could benefit the understandings of transition-metal complexes catalyzed C−H bond activation and also promote the development of new organometallic complexes.
The essential participation of agostic interactions in C−H bond activation, cyclometallation and other catalytic processes has been widely observed. To quantitatively evaluate the Mo−H−C agostic interaction in the Mo β/γ- agostomers [CpMo(CO)2(PiPr3)]+ (Mo, 1 and Mo, 2) and the Mn−H−C agostic interaction in the Mn α/ϵ-agostomers [(C6H9]Mo(CO)3] (Mn, 1 and Mn, 2), the comprehensive density functional theory (DFT) theoretical investigations were performed. Results indicated that the Mo β-agostomer 1 is only favorable by 0.5 kcal mol−1 than Mo γ-agostomer 2, and the Gibbs barrier for their interconversion was 9.1 kcal mol−1. A slightly higher Gibbs barrier of 12.7 kcal mol−1 for the isomerization between the Mn α/ϵ-agostomers was also obtained. The relatively strong agostic interactions in Mo β-agostomer 1 and Mn α-agostomer 1 were further verified by the AIM (Atoms-In-Molecules) analyses and the NAdOs (natural adaptive orbitals) analyses. The findings on the agostic interaction presented in this study are believed to benefit the understandings of the agostic interaction involved catalytic processes and to promote the development of new organometallic complexes.Zum Volltext
