Reaction of a phosphinobenzylsilane compound with ruthenium complexes leads to C-H and/or Si-H activation. The new complex Ru{eta(2)-H-SiMe2CH(o-C(6)H(4))PPh2}2 (5) was isolated and X-ray, NMR and DFT studies reveal that 5 displays two agostic Si-H interactions and two carbon-metallated bonds.
Room temperature reaction of the bis(dihydrogen) complex RuH(2)(H(2))(2)(PCy(3))(2) (1) with excess pinacol borane (HBpin) generates the novel complex RuH[(mu-H)(2)Bpin](sigma-HBpin)(PCy(3))(2) (2) by loss of dihydrogen. Complex 2 was characterized spectroscopically and by X-ray crystallography. It contains two pinacolborane moieties coordinated in a(More)
The phosphinosilane compound PPh 2CH 2OSiMe 2H is potentially a bifunctional P approximately Si-H ligand. By treatment with the Ru (II) precursor RuH 2(H 2) 2(PCy 3) 2, the complex Ru(PPh 2CH 2OSiMe 2H) 3 ( 2), resulting from the coordination of three ligands and the displacement of two PCy 3 and two dihydrogen ligands, was formed. The different bonding(More)
Organoaluminium(III) thioetherbis(phenolate) complexes derived from 2,2-thiobis(4,6-diterbuthylphenolate) (Stdiol) and 2,2-thiobis(4,6-dimethylphenolate) (Smdiol) were prepared by reaction of AlMe3 with the diol proligands LH2 (SmdiolH2, StdiolH2). Monomeric complexes of general formulae [LAlR(L)] (L = Stdiol, R = Me, L = THF (1); L = Stdiol, R = Me, L =(More)
The iridum-gallyl complex MeIr(PCy(3))(2)(GaMe(2))(Cl*GaMe(3)) exhibits a short Ir-Ga bond length of 2.381(1)-2.389(2) Å. Theoretical calculations (ZORA BP86/TZ2P) support the presence of a Ir-Ga single bond but highlight a π orbital contribution.
Three new N-heterocyclic-silazane compounds, 1a-c, were prepared and employed as bidentate ligands to ruthenium, resulting in a series of [Ru(H){(κ-Si,N-(SiMe2-N-heterocycle)}3] complexes (3a-c) featuring the same RuSi3H motif. Detailed structural characterization of the RuSi3H complexes with X-ray diffraction, and in the case of triazabicyclo complex(More)
The synthesis of the new phosphinodi(benzylsilane) compound PhP{(o-C6H4CH2)SiMe2H}2 (1) is achieved in a one-pot reaction from the corresponding phenylbis(o-tolylphosphine). Compound 1 acts as a pincer-type ligand capable of adopting different coordination modes at Ru through different extents of Si-H bond activation as demonstrated by a combination of(More)
The synthesis of a new trisbenzylsilanephosphine P{(o-C6H4CH2)SiMe2H}3 (1) is shown to proceed with high yields from P(o-tolyl)3. Compound 1 coordinates to the Rh and Ir dimers [MCl(COD)]2 (M = Rh, Ir) in a tetradentate or tridentate fashion, depending on the strict exclusion of water. The dimeric compounds [ClM(SiMe2CH2-o-C6H4)2P(o-C6H4-CH2SiMe2H)]2, 2Rh(More)
Dichloro and chloromethyl Ga(III) complexes of general formulae [XClGa-eta2-{R2P(E)NP(E'R'2-E,E'}](X = Cl, R, R'= Ph, E, E'= O (1), S (2), Se (3); R = Ph, R'= OEt, E = O, E'= S (4); R = Me, R'= Ph, E, E'= S (5) and X = Me, E, E'= O (6), S (7), Se (8)) were synthesised by either metathesis reactions between GaCl3 and the potassium salt of the ligand (X = Cl)(More)
