Abstract

Unprecedented zirconium(II) complexes bearing tethered olefin - phosphine ligands were synthesized and characterized. The molecular structures of the newly synthesized complexes (η5-1,2-Me2C5H3) 2Zr(CH2=CHCH2CH2PPh2) (1c) and Cp2Zr(CH2=CHCH2CH2CH 2PPh2) (2a) were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The stability and reactivity of the series of complexes Cp2Zr{CH2=CH(CH2)nPR2} (n = 2, 3; R = Et, Ph) were examined. The complex 2a showed simultaneously both sufficient stability and high reactivity.
