abstract The one-dimensional organic-inorganic hybrid material [MoO3(2,2'-bipy)] (1) (2,2'-bipy = 2,2'-bipyridine) has been used as a starting material to prepare the bipy-deficient phases [Mo2O6(2,2'-bipy)] (2) and [Mo3O9(2,2'-bipy)(2)] (3) in excellent yields. The hybrid 2 was obtained by a solid-state thermal treatment of 1 (300 degrees C, 10 min) while 3 was obtained by a hydrothermal treatment of 1 (160 degrees C, 6 d). A study was performed to compare the catalytic properties of 1-3 in the epoxidation of cis-cyclooctene at 55 degrees C with tert-butylhydroperoxide (TBHP) or aqueous H2O2 as oxidant. In all cases Cy was converted to cyclooctene oxide (CyO) with 100% selectivity, and Cy conversions increased in the order 1 < 3 < 2, which parallels an increase in the Mo/2,2'-bipy molar ratio of the hybrid (1 < 1.5 < 2). With compound 2, CyO yields at 24 h were 96% for TBHP (cosolvent oc,a,a-trifluorotoluene) and 53% for H2O2 (cosolvent CH3CN). The catalytic reactions occurred in homogeneous phase with active species formed in situ from 1-3. All three hybrids react with aqueous H2O2 to give the catalytically active oxodiperoxo complex [MoO(O-2)(2)(2,2'-bipy)]. The 2:1 hybrid 2 was further examined for the epoxidation of other cyclic and linear non-functionalised olefins with TBHP, namely cyclododecene, 1-octene and trans-2-octene, and the biomass-derived olefins DL-limonene, oc-pinene and methyl oleate.
