Insights: Publications Cation-Controlled Olefin Isomerization Catalysis with Palladium Pincer Complexes
Organometallics, 41, 22, 3366
A series of palladium(II) pincer complexes with different substituents on the amine donor has been prepared and studied in olefin isomerization catalysis. Installing a macrocycle into the pincer ligand enables cation-switchable positional olefin isomerization: no reaction is observed with the catalyst alone, while in the presence of Li+ salts isomerization proceeds cleanly. Mechanistic studies implicate a key role of highly electrophilic Pd centers with accessible olefin binding sites in catalysis.
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
