New mechanistic insights into intramolecular aromatic ligand hydroxylation and benzyl alcohol oxidation initiated by the well-defined (μ-peroxo)diiron(III) complex

Abstract

A (μ-peroxo)diiron(III) complex [Fe2(LPh4)(O2)(Ph3CCO2)]2+ (1-O2) with a dinucleating ligand (LPh4), generated from the reaction of a carboxylate bridged diiron(II) complex [Fe2(LPh4)(Ph3CCO2)]2+ (1) with dioxygen in CH2Cl2, provides a diiron(IV)-oxo species as an active oxidant which is involved in either aromatic ligand hydroxylation or benzyl alcohol oxidation.
