Thermally stable homogeneous catalysts for alkane dehydrogenation Academic Article uri icon


  • Thermostability is "conditio sine qua non" (a necessity) if organometallic compounds are used in the homogeneous catalysis of endothermic processes such as the dehydrogenation of alkanes to alkenes and hydrogen (see scheme). This thermostability and other requirements for such a catalyst are fulfilled by the anthraphos iridium(III)dihydride complex 1.
