Reaction of a diiron(III) complex having a xylta4− ligand (N, N, N′, N′-m-xylylenediamine tetraacetate) with H2O2 resulted in regioselective hydroxylation of the m-xylyl linker. The reaction mimics the self-hydroxylation of a phenylalanine side chain found for ribonucleotide reductase (R2-W48F/D84E).
