Oxygenation of 1,5-cyclooctadiene (COD) is achieved on an iridium center using water as a reagent. A hydrogen-bonding interaction with an unbound nitrogen atom of the naphthyridine-based ligand architecture promotes nucleophilic attack of water to the metal-bound COD. Irida-oxetane and oxo-irida-allyl compounds are isolated, products which are normally accessed from reactions with H2O2 or O2. DFT studies support a ligand-assisted water activation mechanism. © 2015 American Chemical Society.
