Reactivity of (3-chloro-2-methylenecycloalkyl)palladium Chloride Dimers: Coupling with Phenyl Nucleophiles
Journal of Organometallic Chemistry
Reaction of the (3-chloro-2-methylenecycloalkyl)palladium complexes (1) with sodium tetraphenylborate proceeds via coupling at either the exocyclic or endocyclic terminus to afford phenyl substituted π-allyl complexes 5 and/or 11. The regioselectivity of this coupling reaction is somewhat dependent on ring size. The new π-allyl complexes 5/11 can further undergo cleavage reaction or nucleophilic addition.
