Abstract:
Vacuum pyrolysis of RuL(PR3)2 affords RuLPR3 (H2L = 2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octaethylporphyrinand its 5,10,15,20-tetramesityl derivative, and R = Ph, Bu, resp.). Reaction of RuLPR3 with CO or PR13 yields RuL(CO)PR3 or RuL(PR3)(PR1), respectively, and treatment with HBr gives RuBrL(PR3); RuL(PR3) are unreactive toward O, N, H, and aldehydes, which has implications for some reported catalytic reactions.
