CSC-pincer versus pseudo-pincer complexes of palladium(ii): a comparative study on complexation and catalytic activities of NHC complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Three thioether bridged diimidazolium dibromides with different steric and electronic properties have been synthesized as precursors to carbene-based CSC pincer ligands. Palladation afforded CSC Pd(II) pincer complexes for bulky and electron rich ligand systems, whereas the least donating ligand led to the formation of a pseudo-pincer complex. All complexes have been fully characterized by multinuclei NMR spectroscopies, ESI mass spectrometry and X-ray diffraction analysis. The catalytic activities of pincer versus pseudo-pincer complexes have been compared in the intermolecular hydroamination of alkynes with anilines as well.
