Abstract

New thioether–phosphanes 2-RSC6H4CH2PPh2 (RS∼PPh2: R = Me, tBu, Ph) and the corresponding complexes [PdCl2(MeS∼PPh2)], [PdCl2(tBuS∼PPh2)], [PdCl2(PhS∼PPh2)], [PdClMe(MeS∼PPh2)] and [PtMe2(MeS∼PPh2)] have been prepared, characterized and the X-ray crystal structures of all complexes determined. Whilst Pd(II) complexes of RS∼PPh2 show low activity for CO/ethene copolymerisation, the complexes [PdCl2(RS∼PPh2)] have been found to be very efficient for the Heck arylation of n-butylacrylate with bromobenzene under aerobic conditions.
