Dihydroperimidine-derived N-heterocyclic pincer carbene complexes via double C-H activation

Hill, Anthony; McQueen, Caitlin


The reactions of 1,8-diaminonaphthalene with paraformaldehyde and secondary phosphines (HPR2, R = Ph, Cy) directly afford N,N'- bis(phoshinomethyl)dihydroperimidines H2C(NCH2PR 2)2C10H6 (R = Ph (1a), Cy (1b)), the methylene group of which undergoes chelate-assisted double C-H activation with [RhCl(PPh3)3] to afford dihydroperimidine-derived N-heterocyclic pincer carbene (per-NHC) complexes [RhCl{=C(NCH 2PR2)2C10H6}] (R = Ph (2a), Cy (2b)). Insight into the mechanism of these C-H activation...[Show more]
