  • We explored ligand-induced reduction of ferrous alkyl complexes via homolytic cleavage of the alkyl fragment with simple chelating diphosphines. The reactivities of the sodium salts of diphenylmethane, phenyl(trimethylsilyl)methane, or diphenyl(trimethylsilyl)methane were explored in their reactivity with (py) 4FeCl 2. Furthermore, we prepared a series of monoalkylated salts of the type (py) 2FeRCl and characterized from the addition of 1 equiv of the corresponding alkyl sodium species. These complexes are isostructural and have similar magnetic properties. The double alkylation of (py) 4FeCl 2 resulted in the formation of tetrahedral high-spin iron complexes with the sodium salts of diphenylmethane and phenyl(trimethylsilyl)methane thatmore » readily decomposed. A bis(cyclohexadienyl) sandwich complex was formed with the addition of 2 equiv of the tertiary alkyl species sodium diphenyl(trimethylsilyl)methane. The addition of chelating phosphines to (py) 2FeRCl resulted in the overall transfer of Fe(I) chloride concurrent with loss of pyridine and alkyl radical. (dmpe) 2FeCl was synthesized via addition of 1 equiv of sodium diphenyl(trimethylsilyl)methane, whereas the addition of 2 equiv of the sodium compound to (dmpe) 2FeCl 2 gave the reduced Fe(0) nitrogen complex (dmpe) 2Fe(N 2). Our results demonstrate that iron–alkyl homolysis can be used to afford clean, low-valent iron complexes without the use of alkali metals.« less
  • Terminal oxo and sulfido complexes in the form of (nacnac)V=E(Ntol 2) (nacnac = [ArNC(CH 3)] 2CH -, Ar = 2,6-(CHMe 2) 2C 6H 3, Ntol 2 = -N(C 6H 4-4-Me), E = O (1), S (2)) were isolated from treatment of the masked three-coordinate vanadium(II) complex, (nacnac)V(Ntol 2), with C 5H 5NO and S 8, respectively. Both vanadium(IV) species, 1 and 2, have been characterized by room temperature X-band EPR spectroscopic studies, and in the case of complex 1, a single crystal molecular structure confirmed the presence of a terminal oxo moiety. Moreover, reaction of (nacnac)V(Ntol 2) with diphenyl-disulfide andmore » diphenyl-diselenide results in the reductive cleavage of these compounds to produce the vanadium(III) complexes (nacnac)V(XPh)(Ntol 2) (X = S, (3), Se (4)). A molecular structure of the phenylsulfide complex, 3, confirmed formation of the d 2 complex resulting from reductive cleavage of the S-S bond.« less
  • Ab initio calculations were carried out on Pt(CH/sub 3/)/sub 2/(Cl)/sub 2/(PH/sub 3/)/sub 2/ and on various Mt(R/sub 1/)(R/sub 2/)(PH/sub 3/)/sub 2/ complexes (where Mt = Pd or Pt; R/sub 1/, R/sub 2/ = H or CH/sub 3/) in order to elucidate the differences in reductive H-C and C-C coupling from Pd(II), Pt(II), and Pt(IV) complexes. These studies explain why (1) reductive C-C coupling is facile for Pd(II), favorable for Pt(IV), and unobserved for Pt(II) systems, while (2) reductive H-C coupling is facile for Pt(II) and Pd(II) systems, and (3) oxidative addition is favorable only for the addition of H/sub 2/more » to Pt(0) systems.« less
