Abstract

Reaction of the aryl-monophosphine ligand α2- (diisopropylphosphino)isodurene (1) with the RhI precursor [Rh(coe)2(acetone)2]BF4 (coe = cyclooctene) in different solvents yielded complexes of all three common oxidation states of rhodium, depending on the solvent used. When the reaction was carried out in methanol a cyclometalated, solvent-stabilized RhIIIalkylhydride complex (2) was obtained. However, when the reaction was carried out in acetone or dichloromethane a dinuclear η6-arene RhII complex (5) was obtained in the absence of addedredox reagents. Moreover, when acetonitrile was added to a solution of either the RhII or Rh III complexes, a new solvent-stabilized, noncyclometalated Rh I complex (6) was obtained. In this report we describe the different complexes, which were fully characterized, and probe the processes behind the remarkable solvent effect observed.
