Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We report herein a new cobalt(II/III) mixed-valence metal–organic framework formulated as [CoIICo2III(μ3-O)(bdc)3(tpt)]·guest 1, where bdc = benzene-1,4-dicarboxylate and tpt = 2,4,6-tri(4-pyridinyl)-1,3,5-triazine, which can be used as a redox-active heterogeneous catalyst for selective oxidation of cyclohexene on the allylic position without destroying the adjacent double bond. Two oxidants were chosen to demonstrate this result. For using tert-butyl hydroperoxide, the conversion rate is 63% and only allylic oxidation products (tert-butyl-2-cyclohexenyl-1-peroxide, 86%; 2-cyclohexen-1-one, 14%) are found, whereas if using O2 as oxidant, a total conversion of 38% is achieved and also only the allylic oxidation products (cyclohexenyl hydroperoxide, 72%; 2-cyclohexen-1-one, 20%; and cyclohex-2-en-1-ol, 8%) are found. The absence of any adduct on the double bond may be due to the unique radical chain mechanism triggered by the mixed-valent [CoIICo2III(μ3-O)] centers.
