First row transition metal substituted polyfluorooxmetalates with quasi Wells-Dawson structures and a nitro terminal ligand, [NaH2M(NO2)W17F6O55]q-, were used as catalysts for the aerobic epoxidation of cyclic alkenes. The Cu(NO2) analog combined the best traits of conversion and selectivity. Some C-C bond cleavage was also observed and cis isomers reacted preferentially without stereochemical inversion indicating an oxygen atom to double bond concerted reaction.
