Abstract

The products of reaction of H2C=CH(OR) with RuH(Cl)L2 (L = PiPr3) and RuH(CO)L2+ (L = Pt-Bu2Me) are RuH(Cl)(=C(OR)Me)L2 and Ru(CO)(CH2-CH2OR)L2+, respectively. Spectroscopic data and X-ray analysis (R -Me, B[C6H3(CF3)2]4 salt, hemi(pentane) solvate) reveal the presence, in the latter, of a β-alkoxy ethyl ligand with a Ru-O bond. DFT (B3PW91) calculations show that the observed products correspond to the thermodynamic preference.
