Deprotonation and anionic rearrangements of organometallic compounds. Reactions of the hydride complex (5-C5H5)Re(NO)(PPh3)(H) with n-butyl-lithiumtetramethylethylenediamine Academic Article uri icon


  • The title reaction (-71 C; 1 h) gives (5-C 5H4Li)Re(NO)(PPh3)(H) (8), which subsequently rearranges intramolecularly (-32 C; 0.5 h) to give Li+[( 5-C5H5)Re(NO)(PPh3)]- (3); the anions (8) and (3) are characterized by reactions with electrophiles.
