An efficient recyclable peroxometalate-based polymer-immobilised ionic liquid phase (PIILP) catalyst for hydrogen peroxide-mediated oxidation

Academic Article


  • A linear cation-decorated polymeric support with tuneable surface properties and microstructure has been prepared by ring-opening metathesis polymerisation (ROMP) of a pyrrolidinium-functionalised norbornene-based monomer with cyclooctene. The derived peroxophosphotungstate-based polymer-immobilised ionic liquid phase (PIILP) catalyst is an efficient and recyclable system for the epoxidation of allylic alcohols and alkenes, with only a minor reduction in performance on successive cycles. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
