Abstract

η5-Cp(COOMe)MoCl(CO)3 is grafted on the surface of mesoporous MCM-41 and MCM-48 materials through available silanol groups. The structural intactness of the supporting materials is confirmed by powder XRD and N2 adsorption analysis. The presence of the Mo complex on the surface is confirmed by FT-IR and elemental analysis. The catalysts are successfully applied for cyclooctene epoxidation.
