Cycloisomerisation of γ-alkynoic acids into cyclic enol-lactones was conveniently performed, for the first time, in the eutectic mixture 1ChCl/2Urea under standard bench experimental conditions (at room temperature, under air and in the absence of co-catalysts) by using a new iminophosphorane-Au(I) complex as the catalyst. Furthermore, the catalytic system(More)
Despite their enormous synthetic relevance, the use of polar organolithium and Grignard reagents is greatly limited by their requirements of low temperatures in order to control their reactivity as well as the need of dry organic solvents and inert atmosphere protocols to avoid their fast decomposition. Breaking new ground on the applications of these(More)
New iminophosphorane-phosphine AuI complexes [AuCl(κ1 -P-Ph2 PCH2 P{=NP(=S)(OR)2 }Ph2 )] (3 a,b) and [Au2 Cl2 (μ2 -P,S-Ph2 PCH2 P{=NP(=S)(OR)2 }Ph2 )] (4 a,b) proved to be general, very efficient, and recyclable (up to four consecutive runs) catalysts for the cycloisomerization of alkynyl amides in water or choline chloride-based eutectic mixtures as green(More)
[(Ru(eta(6)-p-cymene)(mu-Cl)Cl)(2)] and [(Ru(eta(3):eta(3)-C(10)H(16))(mu-Cl)Cl)(2)] react with Ph(2)PCH(2)P[=NP(=O)(OR)(2)]Ph(2) (R = Et (1a), Ph (1b)) affording complexes [Ru(eta(6)-p-cymene)Cl(2)(kappa(1)-P-Ph(2)PCH(2)P[=NP(=O)(OR)(2)]Ph(2))] (R = Et (2a), Ph (2b)) and [Ru(eta(3):eta(3)-C(10)H(16))Cl(2)(kappa(1)-P-Ph(2)PCH(2)P[=NP(=O)(OR)(2)]Ph(2))] (R =(More)
Reactions of [PdCl2(COD)] with 1 equiv. of the iminophosphorane-phosphine ligands Ph2PCH2P{=NP(=O)(OR)2}Ph2 (R=Et, Ph) lead to the novel Pd(II) derivatives cis-[PdCl2(kappa2-(P,N)-Ph2PCH2P{=NP(=O)(OR)2}Ph2)] (R=Et, Ph). Pd-N bond cleavage readily takes place upon treatment of these species with a variety of two-electron donor ligands. By this way, complexes(More)
Edging closer towards developing air and moisture compatible polar organometallic chemistry, the chemoselective and ultrafast addition of a range of aryllithium reagents to nitriles has been accomplished using glycerol as a solvent, at room temperature in the presence of air, establishing a novel sustainable access to aromatic ketones. Addition reactions(More)
The reactivity of complex [Ru(eta(6)-p-cymene)(kappa(3)P,N,O-Ph(2)PCH(2)P{[double bond, length as m-dash]NP([double bond, length as m-dash]O)(OEt)(2)}Ph(2))][SbF(6)](2) towards a variety of mono- and bidentate neutral ligands has been studied, allowing the high-yield synthesis of the novel half-sandwich Ru(ii) derivatives(More)
Toluene has been directly zincated by reaction with the heteroleptic sodium zincate [(tmeda)Na(tBu)(tmp)Zn(tBu)] (1) to afford a statistical mixture of the meta and para regioisomers of [(tmeda)Na(C(6)H(4)Me)(tmp)Zn(tBu)] (2) (TMEDA = N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine, TMP = 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidide). Interestingly, the methyl group of toluene has(More)
The reactivity of the Brønsted basic mixed-metal tris-amide compounds of empirical formula [MMg(N(i)Pr2)3] [where M = Li (1), Na (2)] towards phenylacetylene (HC[triple bond, length as m-dash]CPh) has been investigated and has led to the synthesis of a series of mixed-metal acetylido-amido-magnesiates. Thus, 1 and 2 molar equivalents of the alkyne with(More)
