Catalysis of Kumada–Tamao–Corriu coupling by a (P O C O P)Rh pincer complex Academic Article uri icon


  • A pincer-based (P(O)C(O)P)Rh catalyst is demonstrated to be an active and well-defined catalyst for the coupling of select aryl and alkyl Grignards with aryl iodides. The proposed intermediacy of oxidative addition of aryl halides to (P(O)C(O)P)Rh(I) is supported by the isolation of the oxidative addition product.
