Proximity enforced oxidative addition of a strong unpolar σ-Si–Si bond at rhodium(i)

Author affiliations

Abstract

The new bidentate bisphosphino ligand (5-Ph2P-Ace-6-SiMe2)2 (1) binds rhodium(I) chloride and brings it into close proximity to a strong unpolar σ-Si–Si bond, in which it immediately inserts. In the spirocyclic Rh(III) product of the oxidative addition, (5-Ph2P-Ace-6-SiMe2)2RhCl (2), the two Si atoms are still close enough to engage in weak non-covalent interactions.
