Photochemically-induced dioxygenase-type CO-release reactivity of group 12 metal flavonolate complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Exposure of 3-hydroxyflavonolate complexes of the group 12 metals to UV light under aerobic conditions results in oxidative carbon–carbon bond cleavage and CO release. This reactivity is novel in that it occurs under mild reaction conditions and suggests that light-induced CO-release reactivity involving metal flavonolate species may be possible in biological systems.
