  4. Abstract:
  5. A new cis-dioxo molybdenum(VI) complex was obtained by reaction of 2,4-dihydroxybenzylidene(5-N,N-methylphenylamino-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)hydrazone as ligand and [MoO2(acac)2] in methanol and was characterized by elemental analyses, 1H NMR, IR, and electronic spectroscopic studies. The complex was also analyzed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure determination revealed a distorted octahedral coordination geometry around molybdenum in which the tridentate NNO donor (L2-) is bonded to [MoO2]2+ through phenolic oxygen, hydrazinic nitrogen, and thiadiazole nitrogen. The sixth coordination site is occupied by a weakly bonded methanol. The complex was tested as a catalyst for homogeneous epoxidation of olefins using tert-butyl hydrogen peroxide as an oxidant. In the homogeneous catalytic system, the reactions are efficiently carried out with high yields and selectivity
