Two polydentate ligands represented as L-A and L-B have been synthesized and subsequently grafted on a silica surface via covalent bonds. The organic ligands LA and LB as well as the heterogenized ligands (LASiO2)-Si-. and L-B .SiO2 reacted with manganese(II) and copper(II) ions leading to the formation of the corresponding metal complexes. Catalytic epoxidations of simple olefins with hydrogen peroxide were studied using the above manganese complexes in the presence of a cocatalyst. The major products of the oxidations were the epoxides and the studied manganese complexes showed significant catalytic activities. The copper(II) complexes have been evaluated for the catalytic oxidation of 3,5-di-t-butylcatechol (DTBC) by dioxygen. Based on a combination of structural information, obtained form EPR spectroscopy, and the catalytic activity we suggest that the catalysis of DTBC oxidation by copper complexes is critically determined by two factors (a) for dinuclear complexes, it is enhanced when the (CuCu)-Cu-... distance approaches the (OCCO)-C-... distance in the catechol molecule (2.7 angstrom), and (b) immobilization on silica support results in enhancement of the catalytic activity in cases where even monomeric complexes are located at relative distances approaching the critical (OCCO)-C-... distance (2.7 angstrom). This provides a practical rule for design and synthesis of more efficient copper-catalysts for the catechol oxidation. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (EN)
