Elementary steps of iron catalysis: exploring the links between iron alkyl and iron olefin complexes for their relevance in C-H activation and C-C bond formation.

Abstract

The alkylation of complexes 2 and 7 with Grignard reagents containing β-hydrogen atoms is a process of considerable relevance for the understanding of C-H activation as well as C-C bond formation mediated by low-valent iron species. Specifically, reaction of 2 with EtMgBr under an ethylene atmosphere affords the bis-ethylene complex 1 which is an active… (More)
