The aerobic oxidation of the N-hydroxyguanidinum moiety of N-hydroxyarginine to NO is a key step in the biosynthesis of NO by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS). So far, there is no chemical system that can efficiently carry out similar aerobic oxidation to give NO. We report here the synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of an osmium(III) N-hydroxyguanidine complex, mer-[Os(III){NH═C(NH2)(NHOH)}(L)(CN)3](-) (OsGOH, HL = 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)benzoxazole), which to the best of our knowledge is the first example of a transition metal N-hydroxyguanidine complex. More significantly, this complex readily undergoes aerobic oxidation at ambient conditions to generate NO. The oxidation is pH-dependent; at pH 6.8, fac-[Os(NO)(L)(CN)3](-) is formed in which the NO produced is bound to the osmium center. On the other hand, at pH 12, aerobic oxidation of OsGOH results in the formation of the ureato complex [Os(III)(NHCONH2)(L)(CN)3](2-) and free NO. Mechanisms for this aerobic oxidation at different pH values are proposed.
