Abstract

This work presents the first combined experimental and computational study that gives evidence of the electrophilic reactivity of a nonheme iron(III)-hydroperoxo species. We show that in contrast to their heme counterparts the nonheme iron(III)-hydroperoxo complexes are catalytically much more active and even more so than nonheme iron(IV)-oxo species.
