Mn(I) complexes that enable metal-ligand cooperative substrate activation catalyze a range of transformations. Use of MeMn(CO)5 as a synthon in place of typical Mn(CO)5Br was explored and found to be quite versatile, generating catalytically active species in situ by activation of O–H, N–H, and even C–H bonds.
