Richard J. Burford, Warren E. Piers and Masood Parvez Acetonitrile Coupling at an Electron-Rich Iridium Center Supported by a PC sp 2P Pincer Ligand European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry 2013
Electron-rich IrI aryl amido complexes undergo heterolytic bond cleavage and one-electron reduction to effect coupling of a coordinated acetonitrile ligand. The dimeric product features a bridging diiminato ligand. The ability to mediate this coupling with a late transition metal attests to the highly donating nature of the PCP pincer ligand environment.
