Acceptorless, intramolecular, alkyl dehydrogenation in the solid-state in a rhodium phosphine complex; reversible uptake of three equivalents of H(2) per molecule

Abstract:

Addition of H2 to the phosphine alkene ligated complex [Rh(dppe)(PCyp2Cyp′)][BArF4] 1 (Cyp = cyclo-C5H 9; Cyp′ = cyclo-C5H7, ArF = 3,5-(CF3)2C6H3) in the solid state results in hydrogenation of the alkene and uptake of two further equivalents of H2 to afford the dihydride-dihydrogen complex [Rh(dppe)(PCyp 3)(H)2(η2-H2)][BArF4] 2. Placing 2 under a vacuum or argon results in sequential loss of H2 and dehydrogenation of one of the cyclopentyl rings to reform 1. The hydrogenation-dehydrogenation...
