Abstract

Cyclopentadienyltris (dibutyl phosphito-P) cobaltate, {(C5H5)Co[(OR)2PO]3}– (R=Bu), is a tripodal ligand and also called Kläui ligand (R=Bu). The synthesis and characterization of several vanadium(III) and vanadium(IV) complexes containing Kläui ligand (R=Bu) as the catalytic models to catalyst the oxidation reaction of 3,5-di-tert-butylcatechol (3,5-DTBC) to 3,5-di-tert-butyl-o-benzoquinone (3,5-DTBQ) are detailed here. Chapter II details the synthesis of the supersandwiches and Kläui ligand (R=Bu). Chapter III details the synthesis of vanadium monomeric complexes containing Kläui ligand (R=Bu). Chapter IV details the vanadium dimeric bridging complexes synthesized by different vanadium monomers from Chapter III. Chapter V details the catalytic activities of these vanadium complexes.
