Iridium complexes of new NCP pincer ligands: catalytic alkane dehydrogenation and alkene isomerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Iridium complexes of novel NCP pincer ligands containing pyridine and phosphinite arms have been synthesized. One Ir complex shows good catalytic activity for alkane dehydrogenation, and all complexes are highly active for olefin isomerization. A combination of the Ir complex and a (PNN)Fe pincer complex catalyzes the formation of linear alkylboronates selectively from internal olefins via sequential olefin isomerization–hydroboration.
