Selective catalytic 2e-oxidation of organic substrates by an FeII complex having an N-heterocyclic carbene ligand in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

An FeII complex, 1, having a pentadentate ligand with an NHC moiety catalyzes substrate oxidation to afford 2e-oxidized products with high selectivity by suppression of overoxidation in water. A Bell–Evance–Polanyi plot for the substrate oxidation catalyzed by 1 exhibited an inflection point around 86 kcal mol−1, indicating strong C–H abstraction ability of the reactive species derived from 1.
