Mechanistic insight into halide oxidation by non-heme iron complexes. Haloperoxidase versus halogenase activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

This work presents the first detailed study on mechanistic aspects of halide oxidation by non-heme iron complexes. We show that while iron(III)–hydroperoxo complexes oxidise halides via oxygen atom transfer, the corresponding iron(IV)–oxo complex reacts via electron transfer.
