Abstract

RhL2Cl (L = PiPr3) is found to dehydrogenate cyclooctane to give H2RhL2Cl and cyclooctene; this represents the first observation of the key hydrogen-transfer step proposed for related, catalytic alkane transfer-dehydrogenation systems. Using norbornene as a hydrogen acceptor, transfer-dehydrogenation is catalyzed but turnover numbers are low.
