Spin-state effects: In [(Cz)MnVO] complexes, even with singlet closed-shell ground states, the reactive state is the open-shell triplet B state (SB=1) that has a high oxyl radical character and a transition state (TS) stabilized by exchange-enhanced reactivity (EER; see picture). The dramatic axial ligand effect originates in the EER of this state.
