Simple generation of a dirhodium mu-carbido complex via thiocarbonyl reduction

Barnett, Harrison; Burt, Liam; Hill, Anthony


The reaction of [RhCl(CS)(PPh3)2] with excess catecholborane affords the cumulenic carbido complex [Rh2(μ-C)Cl2(PPh3)4] which undergoes phosphine and halide substitution to afford a range of complexes in which the Rh[double bond, length as m-dash]C[double bond, length as m-dash]Rh spine remains intact. Amongst these, the reactions with K[L] (L = H2B(pz)2, H2B(pzMe2)2, HB(pz)3; pz = pyrazol-1-yl) afford [Rh2(μ-C)(PPh3)2(L)2] whilst with K[HB(pzMe2)3] the unsymmetrical complex...[Show more]
