Abstract: ABSTRACTHigh-valent iron(IV)-oxo species have been implicated as the key reactive intermediates in the catalytic cycles of dioxygen activation by heme and non-heme iron enzymes. Our understanding of the enzymatic reactions has improved greatly via investigation of spectroscopic and chemical properties of heme and non-heme iron(IV)-oxo complexes. In this Account, reactivities of synthetic iron(IV)-oxo porphyrin π-cation radicals and mononuclear nonheme iron(IV)-oxo complexes in oxygenation reactions have been …
