Abstract:
The ferrous complex [(L-1)Fe-II-THF](-), featuring the trisamido-amine
ligand [(RNC6H4)(3)N](3-), where R is the electron-rich 4-tBu-Ph
moiety, can undergo a one-electron oxidation by dioxygen to afford the
corresponding [(L-1)Fe-III-OH](-) complex, and a parallel two-electron
oxidation to generate the antiferromagnetically coupled diferric mu-oxo
compound [(L-re-1(1))Fe-O-Fe(L-re-1(1))]. The latter compound
possesses a ligand that exhibits oxidative rearrangement and retention
of the oxidation equivalent in a o-diiminobenzosemiquinato moiety as a
pi radical. Ligand oxidation is perceived to initiate at an amido
residue leading to formation of an electrophilic, metal-bould aminyl
radical that undergoes an 1,4-(N-to-N) aryl migration reaction. ((c)
