  • ed by an internal site in intramolecular heterolytic splitting, intermolecular activation requires an external base. Such intramolecular heterolytic splitting is also applicable to C−H or other heteroatom−H bond activation as is frequently observed with ruthenium pincer complexes and discussed in this section. 3.1. Activation of the H−H Bond As shown in Scheme 4b, formation of a dihydride complex such as [(PNP)Ru(H)2(H2)] 20 is a result of dihydrogen activation by oxidative addition due to the… CONTINUE READING
