Coordinative flexibility and ligand bifunctionality play important roles in a biomimetic iron complex of a hexadentate ligand (see picture). This system can bind an auxiliary iodosylbenzene ligand to give the first structurally characterized metal complex of this important oxidizing agent. The complex is a protected precursor for Fe V O species, and the selective high-yielding catalytic oxygenation of a sulfide is demonstrated. Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
