Аннотация: The quantum chemical study of the MeOOH/(MeO)(3)Al model system has been carried out in order to predict the mechanism of the catalytic decomposition of t-BuOOH under mild conditions for the t-BuOOH/(t-BuO)(3)Al system being a powerful synthetic tool for selective oxidation. To elucidate the chemical excitation of O-2 eliminated inПоказать полностьюthe catalytic reaction and to predict the electronic state of O-2, the topology of the potential energy surface (PES), the structures of intermediates and transition states, the activation and reaction energies were obtained at the B3LYP/cc-pVTZ theory level. It was shown that the peroxide, (MeO)(2)AlOOMe, corresponding to the experimentally obtained (t-BuO)(2)AlOOBu-t, is formed in the first step of the reaction. After that, in the main pathway, the aluminum-containing peroxide reacts with the second MeOOH molecule through the nucleophilic substitution of the second methoxy group forming the MeOAl(OOMe)(2) diperoxide. The diperoxide rearranges to aluminum-containing ozonide MeOAlOOOMe. The ozonide isomerizes in the mononuclear-metal dioxygen intermediate (MeO)(3)Al.O-2. The latter decomposes through the adiabatic ((MeO)(3)Al + O-2(b(1)Sigma(+)(g))) and nonadiabatic ((MeO)(3)Al + O-2(X-3 Sigma(-)(g))) pathways, which corresponds to experimental data about the incomplete conversion of O-2 to O-2(X-1 Sigma(-)(g)). The generation of O-2(X-1 Sigma(-)(g) was revealed by the analysis of the energy diagram calculated with the CCSD(T), CCSDT(Q), and CASSCF methods. It was suggested that the eta(1)-(MeO)(3)Al . O-2 and, thus, (t-BuO)(3)Al.O-2 complexes are new sources of O-2(b(1)Sigma(+)(g)).
