Abstract

The first C3-metalated indolizine complex was prepared from the reaction between cis-[Os(dppm)2Cl2] (dppm = 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)methane) and propargylic pyridine, HC[triple bond, length as m-dash]CC(OH)(2-py)2. A phosphonium ring-fused bicyclic osmafuran complex was also prepared from the reaction between cis-[Os(dppm)2Cl2] and pyridyl ynone, HC[triple bond, length as m-dash]C(C[double bond, length as m-dash]O)(2-py). The formation of these two products revealed the intermediacy of metal–vinylidene species regarding [Os(dppm)2Cl]+-mediated alkyne transformations. Comparison of the d6 transition-metal precursors employed to activate HC[triple bond, length as m-dash]CC(OH)(2-py)2 suggests that precursors with higher π-basicity favor the vinylidene-involving pathway.
