Reversible insertion of NHC: 1,3-Di-tert-butylimidazol-2-ylidene was inserted into a ruthenium–hydride bond of [Cp*Ru(μ-H)4RuCp*] to form a 4-imidazoline complex that underwent a dynamic process, namely 1,3-migratory pendulum motion of the 4-imidazoline ligand (see scheme). Bimetallic-system-assisted N[BOND]C bond cleavage of the imidazoline ligand proceeded to generate a pseudo-diazaruthenacycle.
