Abstract

The new hybrid inorganic-organic polymer [MoO2Cl 2(H2O)2]·(H2dipy-pra)Cl 2 (1), where dipy-pra = 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane, has been synthesized and crystallographically characterized. MoO2Cl 2(H2O)2 and the [H2dipy-pra] 2+ cation are cross-linked by Mo-H2O⋯O and H 2dipy-pra⋯Cl hydrogen bonds to form a two-dimensional layer structure. Complex 1 is an efficient catalyst, with H2O2 as the oxygen-source oxidant and NaHCO3 as the cocatalyst, in the epoxidation of olefinic compounds under ambient conditions. © Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
