Developments of large-scale energy storages with not only low cost and high safety but also abundant metals are significantly demanded. While lithium ion batteries are the most successful method, they cannot satisfy all conditions. Here we show the principle of novel lithium-free secondary oxygen rocking aqueous batteries, in which oxygen shuttles between(More)
Direct functionalization of alkanes by oxidation of C-H bonds to form alcohols under mild conditions is a challenge for synthetic chemistry. Most alkanes contain a large number of C-H bonds that present difficulties for selectivity, and the oxidants employed often result in overoxidation. Here we describe a divanadium-substituted phosphotungstate that(More)
The reaction of peroxotungstates (H(2)WO(4) + H(2)O(2)) with H(2)SeO(4) gave the novel selenium-containing dinuclear tungsten species, (TBA)(2)[SeO(4){WO(O(2))(2)}(2)] (I, TBA = [(n-C(4)H(9))(4)N](+)), which was characterized by elemental analysis, IR, Raman, UV-vis, (77)Se NMR, (183)W NMR, and CSI-MS. Various kinds of homoallylic and allylic alcohols were(More)
Although the α-oxygenation of amines is a highly attractive method for the synthesis of amides, efficient catalysts suited to a wide range of secondary and tertiary alkyl amines using O2 as the terminal oxidant have no precedent. This report describes a novel, green α-oxygenation of a wide range of linear and cyclic secondary and tertiary amines mediated by(More)
Peroxotungstate immobilized on ionic liquid-modified SiO2 is capable of heterogeneously epoxidizing a wide range of olefins with the maintenance of the catalytic activity of homogeneous analogue. The epoxidation was immediately stopped by the removal of the catalyst, and no tungsten species could be found in the filtrate after the removal of the catalyst.(More)
[reaction: see text] Ru(OH)x/Al2O3 efficiently catalyzes the heterogeneous aerobic oxygenation or oxidative dehydrogenation of alkylarenes to give the corresponding oxygenated or dehydrogenated products. Catalyst/product separation is very easy, and the recovered catalyst is reusable with retention of the high catalytic performance.
The Ru/Al(2)O(3) catalyst was prepared by modification of the preparation of Ru(OH)(3).n H(2)O. The present Ru/Al(2)O(3) catalyst has high catalytic activities for the oxidations of activated, nonactivated, and heterocyclic alcohols, diols, and amines at 1 atm of molecular oxygen. Furthermore, the catalyst could be reused seven times without a loss of(More)
