Single crystal-to-single crystal irreversible transformation from a discrete vanadium(V)-alcoholate to an aldehydic-vanadium(IV) oligomer

Single crystal-to-single crystal irreversible transformation from a discrete vanadium(V)-alcoholate to an aldehydic-vanadium(IV) oligomer

Journal of the American Chemical Society 132(45): 15842-5

An unprecedented single crystal-to-single crystal transformation occurs when a binuclear oxovanadium(V) compound [V(V)(2)O(2)(L)(2)] 1 involving 2,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)-p-cresol (H(3)L) as a bridging ligand is exposed simultaneously to white light and aerial oxygen to generate an oligomeric compound [V(IV)(2)O(2)(L*)(2)] 2 (H(2)L* is 3-hydroxymethyl-5-methylsalicylaldehyde). Each vanadium(V) center in 1 is reduced to vanadium(IV) in 2 at the expense of a two-electron alcohol-to-aldehyde oxidation in the coordinated ligand. The additional electron being released is possibly consumed by molecular oxygen to generate hydrogen peroxide.
