Abstract

A new mechanism for generating C-O bonds from metal-hydrocarbyls involving homolytic, intermolecular migration of the hydrocarbyl group to a vanadium oxo is reported. Responsible for the C-O bond in phenol formed by the reaction of OVCl3 with HgPh2, it may provide air-regenerable metal oxos a role in aerobic alkane oxidations.
