Anchoring terminal octenyl tails on molecular polyoxotungstates yield polymerizable organic-inorganic monomers with formula [CH 2= CH(CH 2) 6Si xO ySiW wO z] 4- [x=2, w=11, y=1, z=39 (1); x=2, w=10, y=1, z=36 (2); and x=4, w=9, y=3, z=34 (3)]. These molecular hybrids can use aqueous hydrogen peroxide to catalyze the selective oxidation of organic sulfides in CH 3CN. Copolymerization of 1-3 with methyl methacrylate and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate leads to porous materials with a homogeneous distribution of the functional monomers, as indicated by converging evidence from FTIR spectroscopy and electronic microscopy. The catalytic polymers activate hydrogen peroxide for oxygen transfer, as demonstrated by the quantitative and selective oxidation of methyl p-tolyl sulfide, which was screened as model substrate. The hybrid material containing monomer 2 was also tested in n-octane to evaluate its potential for the oxidation and removal of dibenzothiophene, a well-known gasoline contaminant. Oxidative desulfurization with hybrid polymer catalysts: Polymerizable organic-inorganic monomers with the formula [CH 2=CH(CH 2) 6Si xO ySiW wO z] 4- [x=2, w=11, y=1, z=39; x=2, w=10, y=1, z=36; and x=4, w=9, y=3, z=34] were used to prepare hybrid porous copolymers with methyl methacrylate and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate. These functional materials catalyze the selective oxidation of organic sulfides with aqueous hydrogen peroxide in biphasic CH 3CN/n-octane systems. The catalyst system shows potential for oxidation and removal of dibenzothiophene, a well-known gasoline contaminant (see figure). Copyright Â© 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
