Abstract

Studies conducted in the field of dehydrogenation and related reactions catalyzed by iridium pincer complexes are compiled. Koridze et al. reported that ferrocene and ruthenocene-based iridium pincer complexes showing excellent catalytic activity for COA/TBE transfer dehydrogenation. In 2006, Goldman, Brookhart, and co-workers reported alkane metathesis by tandem alkane dehydrogenation and olefin metathesis using combinations of an iridium pincer complex and the Schrock catalyst. Kaska and Jensen reported the dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene and tetrahydrofuran and proposed that interaction between the catalyst and arene or oxygen groups inhibited the catalysis. In 2006, ammonia-borane dehydrogenation by a well-defined molecular complex was reported by Goldberg and Heinekey, and it was considered that alkane dehydrogenation catalysts might also effect the dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane.
