Abstract

original image

An open-air ligand concerto: Air-stable and recyclable CpCoI-complexes, which are active in the [2+2+2] cycloaddition reaction, are synthesized. The application of heteroleptic complexes with one electron-poor olefin and one phosphite ligand proved to be the superior catalysts to other ligand combinations with regard to activity and stability.
