C-H and C-O oxidative addition in reactions of aryl carboxylates with a PNP pincer-ligated Rh(I) fragment. Academic Article uri icon


  • Reactions of a series of phenyl esters with a (PNP)Rh fragment have been studied. PhO(2)CPh only underwent C-H oxidative addition (OA). PhO(2)CCF(3) chiefly underwent acyl-oxygen OA. PhO(2)CBu(t) and PhO(2)CNEt(2) initially underwent OA of an ortho-C-H bond of the phenyl group but continued thermolysis led to the phenyl-oxygen OA products.
