Three new hybrid vanadates have been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions with the formula M(C6H16N3)2(VO3)4, where M= Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II). The structural analyses show that the phases are isostructural and crystallize in the monoclinic space group P21/c. These compounds show a two-dimensional crystal structure, with sheets composed of [VO3] chains and metal centres octahedrically coordinated, chelated by two 1(2-aminoethyl)pyperazonium ligands. The thermal study reveals that copper containing phase is less stable than cobalt and nickel containing ones. The IR spectra of the three phases are very similar, with little differences in the inorganic bond region of the copper containing phase. The UV-visible spectra show that the cobalt(II) and the nickel(II) are in slightly distorted octahedral environments. The catalytic tests show that the phases act as heterogeneous catalysts for the selective oxidization of alkyl aryl sulfides, with both H2O2 and tert-butylhydroperoxide as oxidizing agents. The influence of the steric hindrance in the kinetic profile had been studied. The catalytic reactions induce the partial amorphization of the phases.
