Synthesis and property of [PCP] pincer silylene cobalt(I) complexes

2021 
In this paper, two [PCP] pincer silylene cobalt(I) complexes [((Ph2POCH2)2CH)Co(PMe3)(SiCl((NtBu)2CAr)))] (Ar = Ph (2) and 4-MePh (3)) were synthesized through the substitution reaction of [PCP] pincer cobalt(I) complex [((Ph2POCH2)2CH)Co(PMe3)2] (1) with silylene ligands :SiCl((NtBu)2CAr) (Ar = Ph (L1) and 4-MePh (L2)). The reaction of complex 2 with CO afforded the carbonyl silylene cobalt(I) complex [((Ph2POCH2)2CH)Co(CO)(SiCl((NtBu)2CPh)))] (4) while complex 2 reacted with CH3I to give rise to the cobalt(II) iodide [((Ph2POCH2)2CH)Co(I)(PMe3)] (6). With a catalyst loading of 2 mol%, complex 6 displayed the efficent catalytic activity for hydrosilylation of alkenes by using Ph2SiH2 as the hydrogen source under mild conditions. The molecular structures of complexes 2, 3, 4 and 6 were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis.
