Abstract

A new long-tethered boron-containing (P–B–P)-pincer ligand 8 has been synthesized. Complexation of 8 with [Ir(coe)2Cl]2 (coe = cyclooctene) resulted in (P–B–P)(hydrido)chloroiridium complex (P–B–P)Ir(H)Cl 9. Subsequent reaction with nBuLi led to the formation of dihydride complex (P–B–P)Ir(H)210. Both complexes were found to be moderately active for the catalytic dehydrogenation of alkanes.
