Abstract

A novel heterogeneous catalyst, [Zn2.15Al0.86(OH)6.02] [Mn]0.19[C6H5COO]0.48·2H2O, where {[Mn] = chiral sulfonato-salen-manganese(III) complex, Na2MnC20H22N2S2O12Cl, intercalated into ZnII–AlIII layered double hydroxide host}, has been synthesized and found to be an effective heterogeneous catalyst for the stereoselective epoxidation of R-(+)-limonene using molecular oxygen. The catalyst could be recycled without loss of performance.
