© 2019 Elsevier B.V. Syntheses of Re and Mn carbonyl complexes of the diarylamido/bis(phosphine) PNP pincer ligand are reported. The saturated (PNP)Re(CO)3 and (PNP)Mn(CO)3 react cleanly with HBr in acetic acid to undergo decarbonylation with concomitant addition of HBr across the N-M bond. The resultant (PNHP)MBr(CO)2 (M = Mn or Re) complexes can be dehydrobrominated with triethylamine to yield the unsaturated (PNP)M(CO)2. (PNP)Re(CO)2 has high affinity for CO and abstracts CO from (PNP)Mn(CO)3.
