Abstract

The new unsymmetrical phosphonium salts [Ph2PCH2PPh2CH2C(O)C6H4R]Br (R= m-Br (S1) and p-CN (S2)) were synthesized in the reaction of 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)methane (dppm) and BrCH2C(O)C6H4R (R= m-Br and p-CN) ketones, respectively. Further treatment with NEt3 gave the α-keto stabilized phosphorus ylides Ph2PCH2PPh2C(H)C(O)C6H4R (R= m-Br (Y1) and p-CN (Y2)). These ligands were reacted with [MCl2(cod)] (M= Pd and Pt; cod= 1,5-cyclooctadiene) to give the pallada- and platinacycle complexes [MCl2(Ph2PCH2PPh2C(H)C(O)C6H4R)] (M= Pd, R= m-Br (3); R= p-CN (4) and M= Pt, R= m-Br (5); R= p-CN (6)). Cyclic voltammetry, elemental analysis, IR and NMR (1H, 13C and 31P) spectroscopic methods were used ..
