Reactions of a metallacyclobutene complex with alkenes


Holland, R L; Bunker, K D; Chen, C H; DiPasquale, A G; Rheingold, A L; Baldridge, K K; O'Connor, J M (2008). Reactions of a metallacyclobutene complex with alkenes. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 130(31):10093-10095.

Abstract

The first productive reactions of a characterized metallacyclobutene complex with alkenes are reported. Thus, the metallacyclobutene complex (eta5-5H5) PPh3)Co[kappa2-(C,C)-C(SO2Ph) C(Si(CH3)3)CH(CO2CH2CH3)] (2) undergoes reaction with alkenes to give 1,4-diene complexes with a high degree of regio- and stereoselectivity. A mechanism is proposed in which the metallacyclobutene generates a cyclic vinylcarbene intermediate that undergoes [4 + 2]-cycloaddition reactions with activated alkenes. A model of the vinylcarbene intermediate has been examined using quantum mechanical methods.
