[MoO2]2+-Mediated Oxygen Atom Transfer via an Unusual Lewis Acid Mechanism

[MoO2]2+-Mediated Oxygen Atom Transfer via an Unusual Lewis Acid Mechanism

Two alternative mechanisms emerge for the oxygen transfer reaction between DMSO and phosphine catalyzed by a Mo(VI)/Mo(IV) cycle: one in which the first step is the generation of a Mo(IV) species which then abstracts the oxygen from DMSO, and other where the Mo(VI)O2Cl2 core first acts as a Lewis acid on DMSO. Contrary to what is expected from the enzyme models, the second is found to be the preferred pathway.
