Early-late heterobimetallic Rh-Ti and Rh-Zr complexes via addition of early metal chlorides to mono- and divalent rhodium. Academic Article uri icon


  • Addition of TiCl(4) or ZrCl(4) to (PNP)Rh(CH(2)==CH(t)Bu) (1) rapidly gives complexes (PNP)Rh(MCl(3))(Cl) (M = Ti, 2; Zr, 3) in 75-77% yield (PNP = (4-Me-2-((i)Pr(2)P)-C(6)H(3))(2)N). Compound 2 can also be synthesized via a reaction of (PNP)RhCl with TiCl(3) or of (PNP)TiCl(3) with 1/2 [(cod)RhCl](2).
