A series of organometallic oxime complexes featuring a β-protic OH group have been synthesized. The hydrido-bridgedoxime–oximato complex (pictured) dissociates into two mononuclear species, which are interconvertible through reactions with hydrogen donors and acceptors. Owing to the metal–ligand cooperation, catalytic transfer hydrogenation of ketones with 2-propanol has been achieved.
