Abstract

Thermolysis of alkyl-hydrido complexes, LnIr(R)(H) [Ln = {MesHSi(CH2)2PPh2}(PMe3) 2, R = Me, Et], caused the reductive elimination of alkane to generate a 16e iridium(I) species LnIr (A). Intermediate A underwent the intramolecular C-H bond activation. Reactivity of A with MeOH revealed that A underwent a [1,2] H shift from the silicon atom to the iridium center to give hydrido(silylene) complex Ir(H)(η2-MesSi(CH2)2PPh 2}(PMe3)2 (B) reversibly.
