Activation of a water molecule under mild conditions by ruthenacyclopentatriene: mechanism of hydrative cyclization of diynes

Abstract

A ruthenium cyclic biscarbene complex reacted with a H2O molecule under mild conditions to produce η5-oxapentadienyl complex, that proved to be the intermediate in the catalytic hydrative cyclization of a diyne.
