Ru-Complexes of an anionic germabenzenyl ligand

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ruthenium complexes having an anionic germabenzenyl ligand, [Cp*Ru{η13-GeC5(t-Bu)H4}]2 (1) and [Cp*Ru{η1-GeC5(t-Bu)H4}{[η15-GeC5(t-Bu)H4]RuCp*}2] (2), have been synthesized by the reaction of germabenzenylpotassium, KGeC5(t-Bu)H4, with [Cp*RuCl]4. Complexes 1 and 2 exhibit both σ- and π-type coordination and can be regarded as the first examples of a transition-metal substituted benzenoid of heavier Group 14 elements. The isolated complexes 1 and 2 have been characterized using NMR and UV-vis spectroscopy, X-ray crystallographic analysis, and theoretical calculations.
