<i>C</i><sub>3</sub>-Symmetric Ti(IV) Triphenolate Amino Complexes as Sulfoxidation Catalysts with Aqueous Hydrogen Peroxide

The Ti(IV) complex <b>2c</b> bearing a <i>C</i><sub>3</sub>-symmetric triphenolate amine ligand is an air and moisture tolerant complex that efficiently catalyzes sulfoxidation reactions at room temperature without previous activation (catalyst loading down to 0.01%, TONs up to 8000, TOFs up to 1700 h<sup>-1</sup>, quantitative yields). Reactions were performed with aqueous hydrogen peroxide as oxidant, which adds value to the methodology from the environmental viewpoint.
