Abstract

The discovery of the ruthenium cluster μ3,-(η235-acenaphythylene)Ru3(CO)7 (1), which is active in catalytic reactions involving Si–H bond activation, and the rate enhancement by the proximity effect of two Si–H groups enabled the reduction of carboxylic acid derivatives with hydrosilanes under mild reaction conditions. A judicious choice of the hydrosilane and of the additives led to a remarkably selective reduction. Besides simple reduction, the treatment of carboxylic acid derivatives with hydrosilanes in the presence of 1 led to new reactions involving several C–O and C–C bond-forming as well as C–O bond-cleavage steps. These reactions included polymerization, rearrangement, and aromatic substitution. The use of inexpensive 1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxane (TMDS) facilitated the efficient reduction of amides to amines using either 1, commercially available platinum compounds, or environmentally friendly iron complexes. The conversion of tertiary amides into aldenamines was achieved by iridium catalysis. In the ruthenium-, iridium-, platinum-, and iron-catalyzed reduction of amides, the use of the reducing reagent polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS) resulted in self-encapsulation of the residual metal species into the formed silicone gel to give the ‘metal-free’ product in a straightforward way.

  • 75 An improved preparative method of 1 was investigated by using the less expensive acenaphthylene containing acenaphthene (>80% purity Tokyo Kasei Co. Ltd.). Chromatographic purification of 1 at the final step was replaced by crystallization. From 15.8 g of RuCl3·3H2O, 9.5 g of 5 was obtained by the two-step procedure described below. A solution of RuCl3·3H2O (60.8 mmol, 15.8 g) dissolved in MeOH (390 mL) was placed in a stainless autoclave (2 L), and the atmosphere was replaced by CO. The autoclave was heated at 130 °C without stirring for 24 h. The reactor was cooled to room temperature, and the pressure was carefully released. The precipitated orange crystals of Ru3(CO)12 were collected by filtration, washed with methanol, and dried in vacuum (10.0 g, 77% yield). In a three-neck flask fitted with a reflux condenser were placed Ru3(CO)12 (10.0 g, 15.7 mmol) acenaphthylene (80% purity, 18.78 mmol, 2.95 g, 1.2 equiv), and heptane (1.1 L). The mixture was heated at 120 °C for 48 h under an argon atmosphere. After cooling, the formed solid was separated by filtration, and it was washed with hexane (150 mL) until the washings became colorless. A 1H NMR spectrum of the solid confirmed that all of the acenaphthylene and acenaphthene was washed out. The crude solid of 1 (9.73 g) was dissolved in CH2Cl2 (490 mL), and hexane (1.2 L) was slowly added to the solution. Orange microcrystals of 1 (8.58 g, 84%) precipitated from the solution. The mother liquor was concentrated and the formed solid was subjected to recrystallization in a similar manner as above to give an additional 0.91 g of 1.

  • 78 We compared the catalyst activity of 1 with Ru3(CO)12 at low catalyst loadings (0.15 mol% with respect to the substrate). The reduction of N,N-dimethyl-p-methoxybenzamide with PhMe2SiH (4.4 equiv with respect to the amide) in the presence of 1 was complete after 6 hours (TON = 666, TOF (h–1) = 111) at room temperature (ca. 20 °C). Under the same conditions, Ru3(CO)12 was deactivated after 25% conversion of the amide. The catalyst showing highest catalytic activity was a ruthenium homologue of Sunada’s iron complex (Scheme 28); the reaction was over within 2 hours under the conditions (TON = 666, TOF (h–1) = 334); Sunada Y., Inoue R., Nagashima H. to be submitted.

      Recently, the proximity effect in the platinum-catalyzed hydrosilylation of amides was discussed in the following two papers. Beller and co-workers did not observe a rate enhancement by TMDS in the reaction using (diene)Pt(NHC). Pannel confirmed the monofunctionalization of TMDS in the reaction with DMF by Karstedt’s catalyst, which was similar to the RhCl(PPh3)3-catalyzed monofunctionalization of Me2HSi(CH2)nSiHMe2 (n = 2 or 3) with acetone in our previous work.22 We are now investigating them using DFT calculations.85 See:
