Bedford, R.B., Betham, M., Blake, M.E., Coles, S.J., Draper, S.M., Hursthouse, M.B. and Scully, P.N. (2006) Ruthenium PCP-bis(phosphinite) pincer complexes Inorganica Chimica Acta, 359, (6), pp. 1870-1878.

Record type: Article


The reactions of [RuHCl(CO)(PPh3)(3)] with resorcinol bis(phosphinite) pincer ligands lead to complexes of the general formula [RuCl(PCP)(CO)(PPh3)]; the crystal structure of one example has been determined. The structures of the bulky resorcinol 2-methyl4,6-di-tert-butyl resorcinol and its mono-diisopropylphosphinite derivative were also determined. Reactions of [RuCl2(PPh3)(3)] with resorcinot bis(phosphinite) ligands yield complexes of the type [RuCl(PCP)(PPh3)], while the reaction of C6H-2-Me-4,6-'Bu-2-1,3-(OPPh2) with [RuHCl(CO)(PPh3)(3)] provides a PCP-pincer complex in which the ligand has undergone 2-methyl C-H activation.
