Zirconium Complexes Supported by a Ferrocene-Based Ligand as Redox Switches for Hydroamination Reactions

Abstract

The synthesis of (thiolfan*)Zr(NEt2)2 (thiolfan*= 1, 1'-bis(2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-thiophenoxy)ferrocene) and its catalytic activity for intramolecular hydroamination are reported. In situ oxidation and reduction of the metal complex results in reactivity towards different substrates. The reduced form of (thiolfan*)Zr(NEt2)2 catalyzes hydroamination reactions of primary aminoalkenes, whereas the oxidized form catalyzes hydroamination reactions of secondary aminoalkenes.
