Abstract

The photoreactions of a luminescent osmium(vi) nitrido complex, [OsVI(N)(L)(CN)3] (OsN, HL = 2-(2-hydroxy-5-nitrophenyl)benzoxazole), with catechol (H2Cat) and hydroquinone (H2Q) lead to the cleavage of strong C-OH bonds (ca. 120 kcal mol−1) of the dihydroxybenzenes with concomitant conversion of the coordinated cyanide to carbon monoxide.
