Accessing the antipodal series in microbial arene oxidation: a novel diene rearrangement induced by tricarbonyliron(0) complexation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A cyclohexadiene ligand prepared by microbial arene 1,2-dihydroxylation undergoes spontaneous rearrangement upon complexation to tricarbonyliron(0). Subsequent iron removal affords a novel route to formal arene 2,3-dihydroxylation products enantiomeric to those obtainable by direct microbial arene oxidation.
