Pincer complexes as catalysts in organic chemistry
2013 (English)In: Organometallic pincer chemistry / [ed] VanKoten, G., Milstein, D., Berlin, Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2013, 203-241 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Application of pincer complexes in catalytic applications is a rapidly expanding field in organic synthesis. This chapter is mainly focused on selective formation of carbon carbon, carbon nitrogen, and carbon metal (C B, C Si, and S-Sn) bonds, as well as transfer hydrogenation reactions. The described pincer-complex catalyzed processes are more efficient and more selective than the corresponding transformations catalyzed by metal salts and added ligands. Some of the described pincer-complex catalyzed reactions are not amenable by traditional metal catalysts at all. It has been demonstrated that the superiority of pincer-complex catalysts over the traditional ones is based on the high stability and well-defined structure and stoichiometry of these species. These properties of pincer complexes allow a rational design of active and highly selective catalysts.
