A novel nano-layered material based on molybdenum oxide has been synthesized by hydrothermal method using dithiocarbamate. On the basis of the X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, thermal analysis and infrared spectroscopy results, a possible arrangement of organic ligands in the interlayer space of molybdenum oxide has been proposed. Moreover, the catalytic activity of the synthesized nanohybrid of molybdenum oxide was investigated in oxygen transfer reactions. This reagent can oxidize alkenes, alcohols, sulfides, and amines in the presence of hydrogen peroxide with high yield and selectivity.
