© 2018 The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. Oxidative cleavage of aromatic alkenes and oxidation of alkynes have been catalyzed by a simple Fe(ii) complex [Fe(CH3CN)6][BF4]2 using H2O2 as an oxidant at room temperature. A free radical mechanism has been proposed involving the peroxy (OOH) radical to account for our experimental findings.
