An iron(v)-oxo complex with a tetraamido macrocyclic ligand, [(TAML)FeV(O)]-, was produced by reacting [(TAML)FeIII]- with dioxygen without any electron source in acetone at 298 K. The autocatalytic mechanism of dioxygen activation for the formation of an iron(v)-oxo complex has been clarified based on the autocatalysis by radical chain initiators.
