Abstract

A set of 18 zerovalent group 8 metal complexes of the form [MLn(CO)5−n] (M=Fe, Ru, Os; L=neutral donor; n=0–2) were screened for their catalytic performance in aldehyde hydrosilylation and olefin hydroboration reactions. Although none of the untested catalysts were found to perform better than the previously-published complex [Fe(CO)4(IMes)] (IMes=1,3-Dimesityliidazol-2-ylidene), the results suggest that the Lewis basicity of the metal complex does not play a critical role in the catalysis of these two reactions.

This article offers supplementary material which is provided at the end of the article.

Keywords: catalysis; hydroboration; hydrosilylation; iron; Lewis pairs
