Synthesis of Ru alkylidene complexes


The present work describes the robust synthesis of Ru alkylidene complexes (PCy(3))(2)Cl(2)Ru=CHR - precursors for metathesis catalysts. Moreover, the dynamic behavior of complexes where R = 2-naphthyl and 2-thienyl was studied. (1)H NMR techniques were employed to establish the preferred conformations in solution for both complexes and the energy barrier… (More)
