Several dinuclear iron(III) complexes with μ-alkoxo bridges gave predominantly cyclohexyl hydroperoxide in the reaction with cyclohexane and hydrogen peroxide, and similar results were observed when linear n-alkanes, such as n-nonane and n-octane, were used instead of cyclohexane. A mechanism for selective formation of the hydroperoxide is discussed.
