Biomimetic aromatic ring cleavage: An iron(II)-2-aminophenolate complex (see picture, right) with a tetradentate ligand reacts with dioxygen to cleave the aromatic C[BOND]C bond of 2-amino-4-tert-butylphenolate to form 4-tert-butyl-2-picolinate. This complex represents a functional model of 2-aminophenol-1,6-dioxygenase (APD) and 3-hydroxyanthranilate-3,4-dioxygenase (HAD).
