51_13b/2012Back Cover: Bioinspired Five-Coordinate Iron(III) Complexes for Stabilization of Phenoxyl Radicals (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 13/2012)

Electrons at the crossroads within oxidation pathways stabilize five-coordinate, phenolate-rich iron(III) radical complexes. In their Communication on page 3178 ff., Verani and co-workers report bioinspired coordination compounds that possess low local symmetry, and show experimentally as well as by computational methods that subtle changes in the ligand and electrolyte lead to distinct sequences in which the ligand-appended phenolates are oxidized into phenoxyl species.
