Mixed (P=S/P=O)-Stabilized Geminal Dianion: Facile Diastereoselective Intramolecular C-H Activations by a Related Ruthenium-Carbene Complex

Abstract

A new unsymmetrical geminal dianion that contained both a phosphine oxide moiety and a phosphine sulfide moiety has been synthesized. Its reactivity towards Ru(II) was explored, which led to the formation of a highly reactive carbene complex that evolved at room temperature to yield a kinetic orthometalated Ru(II) complex through C-H activation of the phenyl group of the phosphine oxide moiety. This insertion was found to be thermally reversible and a second C-H insertion occurred at a phenyl group of the phosphine sulfide moiety to form the thermodynamic orthometalated Ru(II) complex in a diastereospecific manner. DFT calculations fully rationalized the experimental findings in terms of the relative energies of the kinetic and thermodynamic products and allowed the mechanism of this process to be fully understood.
