Reactions of organorhenium complexes (η5-C5H5)Re(NO)(PPh3)(CH2R) with Ph3C+ PF6-; analysis of the energetics of α-hydride abstraction Academic Article uri icon


  • Reactions of Ph3C+ PF6- with rhenium alkyl complexes (η5-C5H5)-Re(NO) (PPh3)(CH2R) (R = phenyl, n-alkyl) give rhenium alkylidene complexes sc-[(η5-C5H5)Re(NO)(PPh3)=(CHR)]+ PF6-. Modifications in the energy-reaction-coordinate diagrams for these transformations are made on the basis of new data on the relative stabilities of the Re-Cα rotamers of the starting materials. © 1986.
