Reversible C–H activation of a PtBuiBu2 ligand to reveal a masked 12 electron [Rh(PR3)2]+ cation

Author affiliations

Abstract

[Rh(PtBuiBu2)2][BArF4], formed by removal of H2 from [RhH2(PtBuiBu2)2][BArF4], is in rapid equilibrium between C–H activated Rh(III) isomers, but reacts as a masked 12-electron [Rh(PtBuiBu2)2]+ Rh(I) cation.
