Reaction of the ylide complex [(η 5 -C 5 H 5 )Re(NO)(PPh 3 )(CH 2 P + Ar 3 )]PF 6 – with η-butyl-lithium–tetramethylenediamine; generation and stereospecific alkylation of a transition metal-substituted Wittig reagent Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The title reaction (tetrahydrofuran, -24°C, 2 h) gives [(η5-C5H5)Re(NO)(PPh3)(C̄H- P+Ar3)] (2; Ar = p-MeC6H4), which upon treatment with MeOSO2CF3 gives (SS,RR)- [(η5-C5H5)Re(NO)(PPh3){CH(Me) P+Ar3}]PF6- [(SS,RR)-(3)] stereospecifically.
