Attempts at synthesis of some rhodium(III) complexes of ethylenediphosphine

Abstract

Attempts to utilize the compound ethylenediphosphine as a ligand bonded to the metal rhodium were made with a view towards the synthesis of complexes useful for kinetic studies. The desired Rh(III) complexes were not produced. Instead a Rh(I) complex was postulated to have been formed. A general review of rhodium-phosphorus chemistry is given as well as… (More)
