- Regioselective C–H oxidation of aliphatic molecules with synthetic catalysts is challenging. We incorporated substrate-recognition sites into a ruthenium porphyrin–heteroaromatic N-oxide catalytic system in order to characterise its regioselectivity for the oxidation of alkanes. This substrate-recognition catalytic reaction exhibits high regioselectivity and high reaction efficiency.
