      Abstract:

      Exposure of 3-hydroxyflavonolate complexes of the group 12 metals   to UV light under aerobic conditions results in oxidative   carbon–carbon bond cleavage and CO release. This reactivity is   novel in that it occurs under mild reaction conditions and   suggests that light-induced CO-release reactivity involving metal   flavonolate species may be possible in biological systems.
