Title: Group 4 Metalloporphyrin diolato Complexes and Catalytic Application of Metalloporphyrins and Related Transition Metal Complexes

Abstract

In this work, the first examples of group 4 metalloporphyrin 1,2-diolato complexes were synthesized through a number of strategies. In general, treatment of imido metalloporphyrin complexes, (TTP)M=NR, (M = Ti, Zr, Hf), with vicinal diols led to the formation of a series of diolato complexes. Alternatively, the chelating pinacolate complexes could be prepared by metathesis of (TTP)MCl 2 (M = Ti, Hf) with disodium pinacolate. These complexes were found to undergo C-C cleavage reactions to produce organic carbonyl compounds. For titanium porphyrins, treatment of a titanium(II) alkyne adduct, (TTP)Ti(η 2-PhC≡CPh), with aromatic aldehydes or aryl ketones resulted in reductive coupling of the carbonyl groups to produce the corresponding diolato complexes. Aliphatic aldehydes or ketones were not reactive towards (TTP)Ti(η 2-PhC≡CPh). However, these carbonyl compounds could be incorporated into a diolato complex on reaction with a reactive precursor, (TTP)Ti[O(Ph) 2C(Ph) 2O] to provide unsymmetrical diolato complexes via cross coupling reactions. In addition, an enediolato complex (TTP)Ti(OCPhCPhO) was obtained from the reaction of (TTP)Ti(η 2-PhC≡CPh) with benzoin. Titanium porphyrin diolato complexes were found to be intermediates in the (TTP)Ti=O-catalyzed cleavage reactions of vicinal diols, in which atmospheric oxygen was the oxidant. Furthermore, (TTP)Ti=O was capable of catalyzing the oxidation of benzyl alcoholmore » and α-hydroxy ketones to benzaldehyde and α-diketones, respectively. Other high valent metalloporphyrin complexes also can catalyze the oxidative diol cleavage and the benzyl alcohol oxidation reactions with dioxygen. A comparison of Ti(IV) and Sn(IV) porphyrin chemistry was undertaken. While chelated diolato complexes were invariably obtained for titanium porphyrins on treatment with 1,2-diols, the reaction of vicinal diols with tin porphyrins gave a number of products, including mono-, bis-alkoxo, and chelating diolato complexes, depending on the identity of diols and the stoichiometry employed. It was also found that tin porphyrin complexes promoted the oxidative cleavage of vicinal diols and the oxidation of α-ketols to α-diketones with dioxygen. In extending the chemistry of metalloporphyrins and analogous complexes, a series of chiral tetraaza macrocyclic ligands and metal complexes were designed and synthesized. Examination of iron(II) complexes showed that they were efficient catalysts for the cyclopropanation of styrene by diazo reagents. Good yields and high diastereoselectivity were obtained with modest enantioselectivity. A rationalization of the stereoselectivity was presented on the basis of structural factors in a carbene intermediate.« less

  • Recently, the fundamental knowledge of main group metal chemistry has grown. This progress is crucial for the further development of main group metal compounds in silicon chemistry and catalysis and for advancing their applications as green alternatives to many rare earth and transition metal compounds. This thesis focuses on reactivity beyond the welldocumented alkyl-transfer applications for main group metals, and it highlights examples of reactions with Lewis acids and the reduction of carbonyls.
  • The spectrum of V isolated in Ar and Kr matrices at 10°K has been correlated with the gas phase spectrum. The electron configuration was found to be a major factor in determining the direction and the magnitude of the matrix shift for this system. A model calculation was performed using extended Huckel theory. A plausible explanation for the origin of the matrix shifts and the altered intensity relationships observed in the matrix has been developed.
  • Solid-state galvanic cell measurements and oxide equilibration experiments are used to derive thermochemical quantities for a variety of acid-base stabilized alloys such as Nb-Pd, Nb-Rh, Ti-Pd, and Ti-Rh. The experiments have effectively resulted in the titration of palladium by niobium metal. The excess partial molar Gibbs energy of niobium at infinite dilution was determined to be -62 kcal/mole at 1000/sup 0/C and the Gibbs energy of formation of NbPd/sub 3.55/ is -42 kcal/mole. These results and those for the other systems are used to assess the importance of crystal field effects in the context of the generalized Lewis acid-base theory.
  • Mercury (II) rapidly reacts with cobalt complexes of the type CH 3Co(L)H 2O, where L is a Schiff base, to form methylmercury (II) and Co(L) (H 2O) 2 +. Kinetic measurements were made on these reactions which follow a second-order rate expression after correction for a reversible protonation reaction. The reactivity of the series of cobalt complexes is discussed in therms of dπ-pπ bonding in the methylcobalt (III) complex. The reaction of SCN- with Cr (H 2O)R 2+ (R=CH 2Cl, CHCl 2) to form Cr (H 2O) 4R(NCS) + has also been investigated.
  • Applications of zeolites include oil spill cleanup and petroleum refining. Zeolite ZSM-5 catalyzes methanol conversion to gasoline. Studies were made on the active sites, and the thermal, ion exchange, electronic, and chemical properties, by Moessbauer, EPR, luminescence lifetime, and EXAFS spectroscopy on europium-exchanged zeolites A, X, Y, and ZSM-5. The europium zeolite catalyzes thermolytic water dissociation by a process which probably involves europium conversion between the 2+ and 3+ oxidation states. X-ray spectroscopy differences between the surface and interior of zeolites may influence the determination of zeolite selectivity; this was studied by Auger electron spectroscopy in order to observe metalmore » migration and reduction. A study of the isomerization of 1-butene by europium zeolites showed the influence of the silica-alumina ratio, extent of europium exchange, activation pretreatment conditions, structural integrity, cation migration, and impurity levels.« less
