A new reaction for an old metal: A new reaction for iron is described. The abundant and inexpensive metal is applied to the reduction of different olefins under oxidative conditions in ionic liquids with high yields. The catalytic system is recovered and at least ten recycles can be performed. The catalyst with ionic tags is used for ESI–MS analyses to reveal the mechanism of this new reaction. Isotopic labeling experiments are performed to confirm the proposed intermediates of the suggested catalytic cycle.
