Homoleptic Iron(II) and Cobalt(II) Bis (phosphoranimide) Complexes for Selective Hydrofunctionalization of Unsaturated Molecules

Abstract

The low-coordinate homoleptic bulky M2(NPtBu3)4 (M = Fe (A), Co (B)) complexes were synthesized and characterized as dimeric structures by crystallographic studies. Iron complex A can catalyze the hydroboration reaction of aldehydes and ketones. Cobalt complex B outperformed its iron counterpart in hydrogenations of several typical alkenes and alkynes under mild conditions. Poisoning experiments indicate that the Co(II)/HB(pin) catalytic system could be homogeneous.
