Vanadium complexes have been used extensively to catalyze olefin and alcohol oxidation. However, their application in C-H oxidation has not been well-studied. We report herein that commercially available Cp 2VCl2 catalyzes benzylic C-H oxidation selectively and effectively, giving no aromatic oxidation products.
