Homogeneous Activation of Molecular Hydrogen by Four-, Five-, and Six-Coordinate Transition Metal Complexes

Conference paper

Abstract

Certain neutral complexes of bivalent ruthenium (1) and osmium (1, 2), and tervalent and univalent iridium (3, 4) have been discovered to activate molecular hydrogen in solution at normal conditions. These reactions are of considerable interest because they permit comparison of hydrogen-activating characteristics of metal complexes with different coordination numbers and formal oxidation states, two properties which are believed to represent important factors in determining catalytic activation of hydrogen.
