Efficient Lewis Acid Promoted Alkene Hydrogenations Using Dinitrosyl Rhenium(−I) Hydride Catalysts


Jiang, Y; Huang, W; Schmalle, H W; Blacque, O; Fox, T; Berke, H (2013). Efficient Lewis Acid Promoted Alkene Hydrogenations Using Dinitrosyl Rhenium(−I) Hydride Catalysts. Organometallics, 32(23):7043-7052.

Abstract

Highly efficient alkene hydrogenations were developed using NO-functionalized hydrido dinitrosyl rhenium catalysts of the type [ReH(PR3)2(NO)(NO(LA))][Z] (2, LA = B(C6F5)3; 3, LA = [Et]+, Z = [B(C6F5)4]−; 4, LA = [SiEt3]+, Z = [HB(C6F5)3]−; R = iPr a, Cy b). Lewis acid attachment to the NO ligand was found to facilitate bending at the NOLA atom and concomitantly to open up a vacant site at the rhenium center. According to DFT calculations, the ability to bend follows the order 4 > 3 > 2, which did not match with the order of increasing hydrogenation activities: 3 > 4 > 2. The main factor spoiling catalytic performance was catalyst deactivation by detachment of the LA group occurring during the catalytic reaction course, which was found to go along with the decrease in order of DFT-calculated strengths of the ONO–LA bonds. LA detachment from the ONO atom could at least partly be prevented by LA addition as cocatalysts, which led to an extraordinary boost of the hydrogenation activities. For instance the “1/hydrosilane/B(C6F5)3” (1:5:5) system exhibited the highest performance, with TOFs up to 1.2 × 105 h–1 (1-hexene, 1-octene, cyclooctene, cyclohexene). The cocatalyst [Et3O][B(C6F5)4] showed the smallest effect, presumably due to the strong Lewis acidic character of the reagent causing side-reactions before reacting with 1a,b. The catalytic reaction course crucially involves not only reversible bending at the NOLA atom but also loss of a PR3 ligand, forming 16e or 14e monohydride reactive intermediates, which drive an Osborn-type hydrogenation cycle with olefin before H2 addition.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
