1,2-bis(2,5-dimethylthiophen-3-yl)ethane-1,2-dione (1) reacts with MCl4 precursors (M=Ti,Zr,Hf) via coordination of the carbonyl groups. Structures of complex 2-4 were determined in scXRD studies and characterized via multi-nuclear and multi-dimen...
β‐Alkylation through dehydrogenative coupling of primary alcohols and secondary alcohols catalysed by thioether‐functionalized N‐heterocyclic carbene ruthenium complexes
Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt
A new catalytic system for the direct β-alkylation of secondary alcohol with primary alcohol has been investigated. In this work, a series of cationic Ru(II)(η6-p-cymene) complexes with thioether-functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene ligands (imidazolebased 1a-l and benzimidazole-based 2a-e) have been successfully synthesized and evaluated as catalysts. This investigation shows that modifications in the ligand moiety (thioether group and/or NHC core) have a strong effect on both selectivity and reactivity. Imidazole-based complex 1c, with only 1 mol% of catalyst loading, displayed the best catalytic activity as well as the highest selectivity for the β-alcohol up to 98:2 for this tandem borrowing hydrogen/aldol methodology. Applied to a wide range of substrates, β-alkylated secondary alcohols have been obtained in moderate yields, but generally with complete conversion and very high selectivity.Zum Volltext
