Silica-supported tantalum hydride activates at low temperature the C-H and the C-D bonds of cyclooctane and CD4, respectively, to form the corresponding cyclooctyl and perdeuteriomethyl-tantalum surface complexes; these complexes are transformed under molecular oxygen into the corresponding tantalum-alkoxy derivatives which with acetic acid give rise to the corresponding alkylacetates.
