Remote rearrangement of the metal center in a (η⁶-C₆Me₆)Ru(II) complex.


Reaction of [(η(6)-C6Me6)RuCl(Ph)(PMe3)] with internal alkynes in the presence of NaBAr(F)4 gave rise to the 1,4-Ru migration to form the o-vinylaryl complex, providing the first example of 1,4-metal migration of a group 8 metal center; in one case further isomerization to an η(3)-allyl complex was observed.
