Cp*W(O)(2)(CH(2)SiMe(3)) (1) (Cp* = η(5)-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) reacts with oxygen atom donors (e.g., H(2)O(2), PhIO, IO(4)(-)) in THF/water to produce TMSCH(2)OH (TMS = trimethylsilyl). For the reaction of 1 with IO(4)(-), the proposed pathway for alcohol formation involves coordination of IO(4)(-) to 1 followed by concerted migration of the -CH(2… CONTINUE READING
