Synthesis of oxorhenium(V) complexes with diamido amine ancillary ligands and their role in oxygen atom transfer catalysis.

The detailed syntheses of complexes of the form [Re(O)(X)(RNCH(2)CH(2))(2)N(Me)] (X = Me, Cl, I, R = mesityl, C(6)F(5)), 1-3, incorporating diamidoamine ancillary ligands are described. X-ray crystal structures for the complexes [Re(O)(Me)((C(6)F(5))NCH(2)CH(2))(2)N(Me)], 1a, [Re(O)(I)((C(6)F(5))N CH(2)CH(2))(2)N(Me)], 3a, and [Re(O)(I)((Mes)NCH(2))(2)N(Me… (More)
