General description

Benzyl isocyanide forms phosphaalkene-containing complexes.

Application

Benzyl isocyanide was used in the synthesis of Ru(II) complexes containing hydrazine and benzyl isocyanide ligands. It was used in a three-component coupling process leading to O- and N-arylamides.

The complex [(PhCH2NC)AuCl], 1, was prepared by the reaction of [(Me2S)AuCl], A, with an equimolar amount of benzyl isocyanide (PhCH2NC) ligand. Through a salt metathesis reaction, the chloride ligand in 1 was replaced by potassium benzothiazole-2-thiolate (Kbt) and potassium benzoimidazole-2-thiolate...

Reaction of (N(3)N)ZrPHPh (N(3)N=N(CH(2)CH(2)NSiMe(3))(3)(3-)) with PhCH(2)N[triple bond]C affords the 1,1-insertion product (N(3)N)Zr[C(PHPh)=NCH(2)Ph], which thermally rearranges to the phosphaalkene-containing complex, (N(3)N)Zr[N(CH(2)Ph)C(H)=PPh].

We report the formation of a series of novel [Ir(H)2(IMes)(α-13C2-carboxyimine)L] complexes in which the identity of the coligand L is varied. When examined with para-hydrogen, complexes in which L is benzylamine or phenethylamine show significant 1H hydride and 13C2 imine...

The use of Smiles rearrangement in Ugi- and Passerini-type couplings with electron-deficient phenols allows very straightforward multicomponent formation of O-aryl- and N-arylamides. Best yields were observed with the highly activated o- and p-nitrophenols, salicylic derivatives giving adducts in lower yields....
