Organoiridium–quinone conjugates for facile hydrogen peroxide generation

Author affiliations

Abstract

An organoiridium complex bearing a quinone moiety was shown to significantly accelerate the rate of H2O2 formation in the presence of air and sodium formate at low catalyst concentrations. This reaction is proposed to operate through a synergistic mechanism involving transfer hydrogenation catalysis and radical chemistry. Our bifunctional iridium complex could potentially be used in anti-cancer chemotherapy or other applications requiring rapid generation of reactive oxygen species.
