Abstract

Olefins are ubiquitous intermediates in the production of fuels and commodity chemicals. Accordingly, the development of methods for the selective dehydrogenation of alkanes to give olefins is a goal with great potential value. Molecular (homogeneous) catalysts appear quite promising in this respect. Great advances have been seen with pincer-ligated catalysts since the mid-1990s, particularly (but not exclusively) with iridium complexes. In this chapter we give an overview of this productive area of research, with emphasis on recent progress.
