Highly versatile heteroditopic ligand scaffolds for accommodating group 8, 9 & 11 heterobimetallic complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two highly versatile xanthene scaffolds containing pairs of heteroditopic ligands were found to be capable of accommodating a range of transition metal ions, including Au(I), Ir(I), Ir(III), Rh(I), and Ru(II) to generate an array of heterobimetallic complexes. The metal complexes were fully characterised and proved to be stable in the solid and solution state, with no observed metal–metal scrambling. Heterobimetallic complexes containing the Rh(I)/Ir(I) combinations were tested as catalysts for the two-step dihydroalkoxylation reaction of alkynediols and sequential hydroamination/hydrosilylation reaction of alkynamines.
