Abstract

A metal catalysed, electrophilic approach to methane oxidation is discussed. This involves the oxidation of methane to the corresponding methyl ester in trifluoroacetic acid; the oxidant is hydrogen peroxide and the catalyst is the palladium(II) ion. The latter species activates methane by the electrophilic cleavage of a C-H bond, and then acts as a two-electron oxidant towards the resultant metal-bound methyl group. The hydrogen peroxide reoxidises palladium(0) back to palladium(II)
