Abstract

The catalytic hydroxylation of alkanes by an electron-deficient cobalt(III) porphyrin complex and m-chloroperbenzoic acid yielded alcohols as major products with a high kH/kD value, > 99% retention of stereochemistry, and a high regioselectivity; a high-valent cobalt - oxo porphyrin complex was suggested as a reactive hydroxylating intermediate.
