Recent works devoted to the oxygenations of saturated, aromatic as well as olefinic hydrocarbons are surveyed, and the emphasis is made on the authors own publications. Both soluble metal complexes and solid metal compounds catalyze oxidative transformations of hydrocarbons. Hydrogen peroxide, alkyl peroxides, and peroxy acids were used in these reactions as oxidants. The catalytic systems often include obligatory co-catalysts, for example, nitrogen-containing bases or acids (inorganic, carboxylic or amino acids).

Keywords: Alkanes, olefins, aromatics, epoxidation, metal-complex catalysis, alkyl hydroperoxides
