Abstract

original image

O transfer: The X-ray crystal structure of an iodosylarene adduct of a manganese(IV)–salen complex shows bis-iodosylarene coordination with a stepped conformation of the salen ligand. Spectroscopic characterization suggests that the complex maintains the same structure in solution. A reactivity study indicates that the manganese-bound iodosylarene can directly transfer an oxygen atom to substrate.
