Abstract: Ruᵛᶦ(TDCP)O₂ and Ruᵛᶦ(TMP)O₂ were synthesized by reacting Ruᶦᶦ(TDCP)(CO)(MeOH) and Ruᶦᶦ(TMP)(CO)(MeOH) with m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid in dichloromethane. Ruᵛᶦ(P)O₂ complexes are effective in epoxisation of olefins. The turnover rates by Ruᵛᶦ(TDCP)O₂ are lower than that of corresponding reactions catalyzed by RuVI(TMP)O2. Both catalysts are deactivated after the reaction by the formation of a stable Ru(II) carbonyl species. Kinetics studies showed that the intermediates are cationic 3-membered species. A concerted oxygen insertion mechanism is proposed.
