This paper describes our most recent effort to replace an expensive, harmful, ruthenium-based catalyst with an air-stable, user-friendly, inexpensive, benign, iron-based catalyst. Illustrations of its ability to catalyze transfer of aldehydes and ketones and transfer oxidations of alcohols are included.
