Title: Cyclopentadienyl-bis(oxazoline) magnesium and zirconium complexes in aminoalkene hydroaminations

Here, a new class of cyclopentadiene-bis(oxazoline) compounds and their piano-stool-type organometallic complexes have been prepared as catalysts for hydroamination of aminoalkenes. The two compounds MeC(Ox Me2) 2C 5H 5 (Bo MCpH; Ox Me2 = 4,4-dimethyl-2-oxazoline) and MeC(Ox Me2) 2C 5Me 4H (Bo MCp tetH) are synthesized from C 5R 4HI (R = H, Me) and MeC(Ox Me2) 2Li. These cyclopentadiene-bis(oxazolines) are converted into ligands that support a variety of metal centers in piano-stool-type geometries, and here we report the preparation of Mg, Tl, Ti, and Zr compounds. Bo MCpH and Bo MCp tetH react with MgMe 2(O 2C 4H 8) 2 to give the magnesium methyl complexes {Bo MCp}MgMe and {Bo MCp tet}MgMe. Bo MCpH and Bo MCp tetH are converted to Bo MCpTl and Bo MCp tetTl by reaction with TlOEt. The thallium derivatives react with TiCl 3(THF) 3 to provide [{Bo MCp}TiCl(μ-Cl)] 2 and [{Bo MCptet}TiCl(μ-Cl)] 2, the former of which is crystallographically characterized as a dimeric species. Bo MCpH and Zr(NMe 2) 4 react to eliminate dimethylamine and afford {Bo MCp}Zr(NMe 2) 3, which is crystallographically characterized as a monomeric four-legged piano-stool compound. {Bo MCp}Zr(NMe 2) 3, {Bo MCp}MgMe, and {Bo MCp tet}MgMe are efficient catalysts formore » the hydroamination/cyclization of aminoalkenes under mild conditions.« less
