An unprecedented metal-stabilized phenoxonium cation was prepared by a process involving dearomatization of a phenoxy complex. The unique η2 C=O-metal (iridium) coordination mode leaves the positive charge delocalized within the former aromatic ring. The X-ray structure and conversion into η2 C=O-coordinated metal-quinone complex are described.
