Ligand Rearrangement Leads to Tetrahydrothiophene-Functionalized N,S-Heterocyclic Carbene Palladium(II) Complexes

Authors

Abstract

Tetrahydrothiophene-functionalized N,S-heterocyclic carbene palladium(II) complexes are synthesized through an unexpected rearrangement that proceeds with palladium(II) trifluoroacetate and not with palladium(II) acetate, palladium(II) bromide, or palladium(II) chloride. A series of these complexes were isolated and characterized by X-ray crystallography. The mechanism of formation of these [3.2.1]-palladabicycles was explored, and the catalytic capabilities of these complexes were demonstrated in representative C–C coupling reactions.
