Four new tungsten-oxo(VI) complexes have been synthesized, characterized spectroscopically and their molecular structure established by X-ray diffraction analysis. These bear identical environment as previously reported molybdenum-oxo(VI) complexes, which allowed direct comparison of their spectroscopic properties. Their capability as oxygen atom transfer agents was found to be significantly lower than their molybdenum analogs. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
