Bis(bipyridine) ruthenium(II) bis(phosphido) metalloligand: synthesis of heterometallic complexes and application to catalytic (E)-selective alkyne semi-hydrogenation

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first phosphido derivative of the bis(bipyridine) ruthenium(II) fragment, cis-[(bpy)2Ru(PPh2)2] ([RuP2]), has been developed and applied as a P-donor metalloligand to form new Ru–Rh, Ru–Ir and Ru2Cu2 heterometallic complexes. The Ru–Ir hydride complex [([RuP2])IrH(NCMe)3][BF4]2 exhibits significant catalytic activity for (E)-selective semi-hydrogenation of alkynes.
