C(sp3)-C(sp3) Coupling with a Pd(II) Complex Bearing a Structurally Responsive Ligand
URL with Digital Object Identifier
A dimer with two PdII-Me fragments is stabilized by the bridging coordination of the supporting 1-azaallyl/phosphine ligand. Heating the complex results in C(sp3)-C(sp3) bond formation and the release of ethane. Two different palladium products are generated, each with distinct coordination modes of the 1-azaallyl/phosphine ligand.
