O-O bond formation mediated by a hexanuclear iron complex supported on a stannoxane core

The FeIIcomplex of a hexanuclear non-heme ligand performs an OO bond formation reaction using iodosobenzene as the oxygen source. On the basis of infrared, UV/Vis, kinetic and DFT studies a radical coupled OO bond formation mechanism is proposed (see scheme). These findings are extremely important for the design and discovery of faster and cheaper water oxidation catalysts ​
