Titanosilicalite TS-1 catalyses oxidation of light (methane, ethane, propane and n-butane) and normal higher (hexane, heptane, octane and nonane) alkanes to give the corresponding isomeric alcohols and ketones. The oxidation of higher alkanes proceeds in many cases with a unique regioselectivity. Thus, in the reaction with n-heptane the CH2 groups in position 3 exhibited a...

A surprising double carbon–nitrogen coupling reaction catalyzed by [H3Ru4 (C6H6)4 (OH)] 2+ : synthesis of unusual barbiturate analogues

Seven- and eight-membered analogues of barbituric acid are easily accessible by insertion of carbodiimides into cyclic anhydrides catalyzed by the cationic hydroxo cluster [H3Ru4 (C6H6)4 (OH)] 2+.
