A disulfide-bridged dicopper(I) complex [Cu2(Py2SSPy2)](ClO4)2 (1), synthesized by the redox reaction of a Cu(II) salt with a thiol-containing N3S-donor ligand, N,N-bis[2-(2-pyridyl)ethyl]-2-mercapto-2-methylpropylamine (Py2SH), is demonstrated to catalyze epoxidation and hydroxylation with H2O2 as an oxidant.
