A well-defined iron pincer complex has been successfully applied for the isomerization of allylic and homo-allylic alcohols to the corresponding ketones. A range of differently substituted aromatic as well as aliphatic allylic alcohols are suitable candidates. The addition of KOtBu leads to the formation of the active catalyst, which performs the isomerization by a two-step self-hydrogen-borrowing process. The mechanism was verified using DFT calculations. More information can be found in the Full Paper by J. G. de Vries, et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201705454).
