The novel ligands and (i-Pr-Rucaphos, Cy-Rucaphos) react with (tmeda)PdMe(2) yielding ethane and distinctly bent, trans-spanning bisphosphine chelated 14-electron palladium(0) species, which have been fully characterized, including single crystal X-ray diffraction.
The title compound, [Pd(4)(CH(2))(2)Cl(4)(C(28)H(40)P(2))(2)]·5C(4)H(8)O, possesses a tetra-nuclear palladium core with four bridging chlorido ligands and two bridging methyl-ene units, as well as two bridging anthracene-based bis-phosphine ligands. This tetra-nuclear complex can be considered as being composed of two μ-chlorido-bridged LPd(2) units. The… (More)
