Abstract

Addition of H2 to the precursor [Rh(Cyp2PCH2CH2PCyp2)(η2:η2-C7H8)][BArF4] gives the σ-alkane complex [Rh(Cyp2PCH2CH2PCyp2)(η2:η2-C7H12)][BArF4] by a single-crystal to single-crystal reaction, as characterized by X-ray crystallography, SSNMR spectroscopy, and periodic DFT. An unexpected rearrangement of the {Rh(L2)}+ fragment is revealed.
