Dicarbonylrhodium(I) complexes of aminophenols and their catalytic carbonylation reaction.

Sharma, Manab; Sarmah, Bhasker J.; Bhattacharyya, Pradip; Deka, Ramesh C.; Dutta, Dipak K.


The complexes [Rh(CO)2CIL](1), where L = 2-aminophenol (a), 3-aminophenol (b) and 4-aminophenol (c), have been synthesized and characterized. The ligands are coordinated to the metal centre through an N-donor site. The complexes 1 undergo oxidative addition (OA) reactions with various alkyl halides (RX) like CH3I, C2H5I and C6H5CH2Cl to produce Rh(III) complexes of the type [Rh(CO)(COR)XCIL], where R = -CH3(2), -C2H5(3), X = I; R = C6H5CH2- and X = Cl (4). The OA reaction with CH3I follows a...[Show more]
