Arrested α-hydride migration activates a phosphido ligand for C–H insertion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Bulky tris(carbene)borate ligands provide access to high spin iron(II) phosphido complexes. The complex PhB(MesIm)3FeP(H)Ph is thermally unstable, and [PPh] group insertion into a C–H bond of the supporting ligand is observed. An arrested α-hydride migration mechanism suggests increased nucleophilicity of the phosphorus atom facilitates [PPh] group transfer reactivity.
