Abstract


Encapsulation of a manganese porphyrin in a self-assembled molecular cage allows catalytic epoxidation of various substrates in 1:1 water/acetonitrile mixtures. The cage acts as a phase-transfer catalyst and creates a protective environment for the catalyst improving the stability. The encapsulated catalyst also allows discrimination between styrene derivatives of various sizes. In a direct competition experiment, the selectivity of the epoxidation reaction could be inverted with respect to a benchmark catalyst.
