Abstract
The novel complex IndðCOÞ3Mo–RuðCOÞ2Cp (1) (Ind ¼ g5-indenyl; Cp ¼ g5-cyclopentadienyl), as well as other hetero and homo metallic complexes of molybdenum and ruthenium are catalyst precursors in the aerobic oxidation of THF under ambient conditions. Selectivities towards c-butyrolactone of up to 70% are obtained. For the first time in this transformation, propylformate is isolated besides the lactone.
