Identification of binuclear acyl complexes as intermediates in the CO-induced conversion of [(η5-C5H5)Co(CO)(Me)]2 into acetone, and [(η5-C5H5)Co(CO)(Et)]2 into pentan-3-one

Abstract

Studies of the carbonylation of [(η5-C5H5)Co(CO)(R)]2(R = Me, Et) at temperatures below ambient have revealed that these complexes may be converted into ketones via binuclear diacyl complexes [(η5-C5H5)Co(CO)(COR)]2; the postulated mechanistic pathway circumvents the earlier-identified intermediate (η5-C5H5)Co(CO)R2, and involves alkyl transfer from a CoII acyl complex as a critical step.
