A series of Cp*Ir complexes can catalyze C-H oxidn., with ceric ammonium nitrate as the terminal oxidant and water as the source of oxygen. Remarkably the hydroxylation of cis-decalin and 1,4-dimethylcyclohexane proceeds with retention of stereochem. With H2O18, cis-decalin oxidn. gave 18O incorporation into the product cis-decalol.
