dc.description.abstractAn electron-rich PCsp2P ligand, incorporating N,N-dimethylamino groups para to the anchoring carbene donor of the ligand, was prepared and coordinated to iridium, producing the iridium carbene chloride 2. This species undergoes facile reaction with N2O to afford an iridaepoxide complex, 3, in which an oxygen atom has been transferred to the Ir=C bond. The rate of this reaction is significantly faster than that observed for the less electron rich, unsubstituted ligand. However, further reaction of 3 involving cleavage of one of the ligand C–C bonds was observed, producing the bis-phosphine chorido complex 4. This process was accelerated by the presence of H2. Heating 4 under H2 resulted in hydrogenolysis of the ortho-metalated phosphine ligand to give a hydrido complex (5) and decarbonylation of the acyl phosphine ligand to give, finally, Vaska’s complex analog 6. All compounds were fully characterized, and the sequence represents the dismantling of the PCsp2P ligand framework.en_US
