An Fe-N₂ Complex That Generates Hydrazine and Ammonia via Fe═NNH₂: Demonstrating a Hybrid Distal-to-Alternating Pathway for N₂ Reduction.

Abstract

Biological N2 fixation to NH3 may proceed at one or more Fe sites in the active-site cofactors of nitrogenases. Modeling individual e(-)/H(+) transfer steps of iron-ligated N2 in well-defined synthetic systems is hence of much interest but remains a significant challenge. While iron complexes have been recently discovered that catalyze the formation of NH3… (More)
