(Chemical Equation Presented) On the side: The crystal structure of a peroxido MnIII complex bearing a non-heme ligand shows that the peroxide ligand is bound to a manganese ion symmetrically in a side-on η2 fashion. The complex is capable of deformylating aldehydes by a nucleophilic reaction but not capable of oxygenating substrates by an electrophilic reaction. tmc = 1,4,8,11-tetramethyl-1,4,8,11- tetraazacyclotetradecane.
