The Co(II)/Co(III)-induced decomposition of hydroperoxides is an important reaction in many industrial processes and is referred to as deperoxidation. In the first step of the so-called Haber-Weiss cycle, alkoxyl radicals and Co(III)-OH species are generated upon the reaction of the Co(II) ion with ROOH. The catalytic cycle is closed upon the regeneration of the Co(II) ion through the reaction of the Co(III)-OH species with a second ROOH molecule, thus producing one equivalent of the peroxyl… CONTINUE READING
