Mechanism of efficient anti-Markovnikov olefin hydroarylation catalyzed by homogeneous Ir ( III ) complexes †


The mechanism of the hydroarylation reaction between unactivated olefins (ethylene, propylene, and styrene) and benzene catalyzed by [(R)Ir(m-acac-O,O,C)-(acac-O,O)2]2 and [R-Ir(acac-O,O)2(L)] (R = acetylacetonato, CH3, CH2CH3, Ph, or CH2CH2Ph, and L = H2O or pyridine) Ir(III) complexes was studied by experimental methods. The system is selective for… (More)
