Alkane oxidation by a carboxylate-bridged dimanganese(III) complex

Abstract
A new manganese(III) oxamato dimer possesing an unprecedented Mn2(μ-O2CR)(μ-OH2…O2CR) core has been synthesised, structurally and magnetically characterised, and used as a catalyst for the oxidation of alkanes to alcohols and ketones by Bu^tO2H and O2 in CH2Cl2 at rt.
