C–H and C–O oxidative addition in reactions of aryl carboxylates with a PNP pincer-ligated Rh(I) fragment

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reactions of a series of phenyl esters with a (PNP)Rh fragment have been studied. PhO2CPh only underwent C–H oxidative addition (OA). PhO2CCF3 chiefly underwent acyl–oxygen OA. PhO2CBut and PhO2CNEt2 initially underwent OA of an ortho-C–H bond of the phenyl group but continued thermolysis led to the phenyl–oxygen OA products.
