  4. Abstract:
  5. This study reports synthesis and characterization of polymeric [MoO2(Salen)] complexes that combine MoO2(acac)2 and polymeric ligands bearing N2O2 coordination sites, abbreviated herein as [piperazinCH2{MoO2(Salen)}]n (6), [piperazinCH2{MoO2(Salophen)}]n (7), and [piperazinCH2{MoO2(Salpn)}]n (8). The epoxidation of alkenes using tert-butyl hydroperoxide and oxidation of sulfides to sulfoxides by urea hydrogen peroxide were enhanced with excellent selectivity under the catalytic influence of these coordination polymers. No relevant difference in activity was found due to change in the diamine in the Schiffs base ligands. The stability of polymeric catalysts was assessed by recycling a sample five times in small batch reactions in both epoxidation and sulfoxidation. In the case of cyclooctene epoxidation, catalytic activity of [piperazinCH2{MoO2(Salen)}]n increased without losing the selectivity, whereas the catalytic activity and selectivity of the spent catalyst decreased in sulfoxidation of methyl phenyl sulfide in consecutive runs. Loss of Mo from the coordination polymer has been investigated using the filtrates as potential catalysts in sulfoxidation reactions. Molybdenum leaching degree decreases through five cycles. Moreover, the catalyst can be recovered from the reaction mixture unchanged as determined by IR and UV-Vis spectra
