Insights into the decomposition of olefin metathesis precatalysts

The decomposition of a series of benzylidene, methylidene, and 3-phenylindenylidene complexes has been probed in alcohol solution in the presence of base. Tricyclohexylphosphane-containing precatalysts are shown to yield [RuCl(H)(H2)(PCy3)2] in isopropyl alcohol solutions, while 3-phenylindenylidene complexes lead to η5-(3- phenyl)indenyl products. The potential-energy surfaces for the formation of the latter species have been probed using density functional theory studies

Abstract: The decomposition of a series of benzylidene, methylidene, and 3-phenylindenylidene complexes has been probed in alcohol solution in the presence of base. Tricyclohexylphosphane-containing precatalysts are shown to yield [RuCl(H)(H2)(PCy3)2] in isopropyl alcohol solutions, while 3-phenylindenylidene complexes lead to η5-(3- phenyl)indenyl products. The potential-energy surfaces for the formation of the latter species have been probed using density functional theory studies
