Catalytic dehydroaromatization of n-alkanes by pincer-ligated iridium complexes.


Aromatic hydrocarbons are among the most important building blocks in the chemical industry. Benzene, toluene and xylenes are obtained from the high temperature thermolysis of alkanes. Higher alkylaromatics are generally derived from arene-olefin coupling, which gives branched products--that is, secondary alkyl arenes--with olefins higher than ethylene. The… (More)
