No carboxylato ligand, no activation: A series of bis(carboxylato)ruthenium(II) complexes are prepared. An internal stereospecific C[BOND]H bond cleavage reaction occurs to give a ruthenalactone through prior dissociation of a PMe3 ligand. Here, a coordinated carboxylato ligand acts as an internal base, and a typical proton acceptor such as a proton sponge does not assist the reaction.
