Ali Khan, M., Lowe, J. P., Johnson, A. L., Stewart, A. J. W. and Lewis, S. E., 2011. Accessing the antipodal series in microbial arene oxidation: a novel diene rearrangement induced by tricarbonyliron(0) complexation. Chemical Communications, 47 (1), pp. 215-217.
A cyclohexadiene ligand prepared by microbial arene 1,2-dihydroxylation undergoes spontaneous rearrangement upon complexation to tricarbonyliron(0). Subsequent iron removal affords a novel route to formal arene 2,3-dihydroxylation products enantiomeric to those obtainable by direct microbial arene oxidation.
