Applications of Dioxomolybdenum(VI) Complexes to Organic Synthesis

Roberto Sanz and María R. Pedrosa
Due to their relevance in biological processes, molybdenum-catalyzed oxygentransfer
reactions have attracted considerable interest. In this context, some
dioxomolybdenum(VI) complexes, with the cis-[MoO2]2+ core, that mimic oxotransferases,
have been found to be efficient catalysts for several oxidation and reduction reactions in
organic synthesis. More recently, the utility of these molybdenum(VI) complexes has been
extended to other processes such as hydrosilylation reactions and, due to the amphoteric
character of the Mo=O unit, to some Lewis acid-Lewis base conjugate catalyzed reactions.
