A Mononuclear Nonheme Iron(V)-Imido Complex #chempaperaday 303

This is the first example of a "mononuclear nonheme iron(V)-imido complex". You can be sure that it is very reactive and that's why it didn't let them get a crystal structure. But, there is A LOT of spectroscopic characterization that we almost don't need a structure any more. The complex can do C-H activation and nitrene transfer reactions and I expect a follow up paper soon. Very nice!
