Synthesis of a chelating hexadentate ligand with a P 3 N 3 donor set. Crystal and molecular structure of [ OC -6-22]-[Co{( R P *, R P *, R P *)-CH 3 C(CH 2 PPhC 6 H 4 NH 2 - 2) 3 }](PF 6 ) 3

Bennett, Justine; Doyle, Roy; Salem, Geoffrey; Willis, Anthony


The first structurally authenticated example of a hexadentate chelating tertiary phosphine in which all six donors are bound to a single metal centre is described. The multidentate ligand (RP*,RP*, RP*)- and (RP*,RP*,S P*)-CH3C(CH2PPhC6H 4NH2-2)3 has been prepared in 80% yield via the reaction of five equivalents of sodium (2-aminophenyl)phenylphosphide (generated in situ from (2-aminophenyl)phenylphosphine and sodium in thf) with 1,1,1-tri(bromomethyl)ethane in thf. The diastereomeric mixture...[Show more]
