Abstract

Irradiation of a toluene solution of[Ru2(CO)6-(μ-dppm)(μ-SiTol2)] (1) in the presence of an excess of Tol2SiH2 produced a μ-silyl complex, [Ru2(CO)5(SiTol2H)-(μ-dppm)(μ-n2 -HSiTol2)] (2), which was further converted to a μ-silane complex, [{Ru(CO)2(SiTol2H)}2(μ-dppm)(μ-n2 :n2-H2SiTol2)] (3), quantitatively. Complex 3 released Tol2SiH2 in the presence of CO to regenerate 2, which finally reverted to 1 under thermal conditions. The X-ray crystal structures of 1 and 3 were determined.
