High valent iron-oxo species are often invoked as the key oxidizing agents in the catalytic cycles of oxygen activating nonheme iron enzymes, and three of these intermediates have in fact been characterized. To gain further insight into such species, a number of biomimetic complexes have been designed and investigated as functional models for these enzymes.(More)
Iron(V)-oxo species have been proposed as key reactive intermediates in the catalysis of oxygen-activating enzymes and synthetic catalysts. Here, we report the synthesis of [Fe(TAML)(O)]- in nearly quantitative yield, where TAML is a macrocyclic tetraamide ligand. Mass spectrometry, Mössbauer, electron paramagnetic resonance, and x-ray absorption(More)
Intermediate Q, the methane-oxidizing species of soluble methane monooxygenase, is proposed to have an [Fe(IV)(2)(mu-O)(2)] diamond core. In an effort to obtain a synthetic precedent for such a core, bulk electrolysis at 900 mV (versus Fc(+/0)) has been performed in MeCN at -40 degrees C on a valence-delocalized [Fe(III)Fe(IV)(mu-O)(2)(L(b))(2)](3+) complex(More)
The reaction of [Fe(2)(mu-OH)(2)(6-Me(3)-TPA)(2)](2+) (1) [6-Me(3)-TPA, Tris(6-methyl-2-pyridylmethyl)amine] with O(2) in CH(2)Cl(2) at -80 degrees C gives rise to two new intermediates, 2 and 3, before the formation of previously characterized [Fe(2)(O)(O(2))(6-Me(3)-TPA)(2)](2+) (4) that allow the oxygenation reaction to be monitored one electron-transfer(More)
The reactions of iron(II) complexes [Fe(T(pt-Bu,i-Pr))(OH)] (1a, Tp(t-Bu,i-Pr) = hydrotris(3-tert-butyl-5-isopropyl-1-pyrazolyl)borate), [Fe(6-Me2BPMCN)(OTf)2] (1b, 6-Me2BPMCN = N,N'-bis((2-methylpyridin-6-yl)methyl)-N,N'-dimethyl-trans-1,2-diaminocyclohexane), and [Fe(L8Py2)(OTf)](OTf) (1c, L8Py2 = 1,5-bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)-1,5-diazacyclooctane) with(More)
Oxygenation of [Cu(I)(6-PhTPA)](SbF(6)) in acetone at -90 degrees C produces a short-lived Cu(III)(2)(mu-O)(2) intermediate that exhibits an oxygen-isotope-sensitive nu(Cu-O) mode at 599 cm(-1) and an overtone at 1192 cm(-1). The formation of this intermediate is very fast and is second-order in copper(I) complex, implying that two copper-containing species(More)
Oxoiron(V) species are postulated to be involved in the mechanisms of the arene cis-dihydroxylating Rieske dioxygenases and of bioinspired nonheme iron catalysts for alkane hydroxylation, olefin cis-dihydroxylation, and water oxidation. In an effort to obtain a synthetic oxoiron(V) complex, we report herein the one-electron oxidation of the S = 1 complex(More)
With the goal of gaining insight into the structures of peroxo intermediates observed for oxygen-activating nonheme diiron enzymes, a series of metastable synthetic diiron(III)-peroxo complexes with [Fe(III)(2)(mu-O)(mu-1,2-O(2))] cores has been characterized by X-ray absorption and resonance Raman spectroscopies, EXAFS analysis shows that this basic core(More)
Recently, we reported the characterization of the S = (1)/ 2 complex [Fe (V)(O)B*] (-), where B* belongs to a family of tetraamido macrocyclic ligands (TAMLs) whose iron complexes activate peroxides for environmentally useful applications. The corresponding one-electron reduced species, [Fe (IV)(O)B*] (2-) ( 2), has now been prepared in >95% yield in(More)
