(Chemical Equation Presented) Oxoferryl gymnastics: The oxo and CH 3CN ligands in 1-NCCH3 can swap positions in the presence of iodosobenzene and tetrafluoroborate anion leading to the generation of a more reactive isomer 2. This conversion is proposed to take place via an activated FeIV unit (1a) or a transient dioxoiron(VI) species (1b).
