Abstract

The fluoroaryl phosphines P{C6H3(CF3)2-3,5}3 (Laa) and P(C6F5)3 (Lbb) form the complexes trans-[MCl2(Laa)2] and trans-[MCl2(Lbb)2] (M = Pd or Pt) which have been isolated and fully characterised. 31P NMR studies of competition experiments show that the stability of trans-[PdCl2L2] is in the order L = Lbb < Laa < PPh3. The crystal structure of trans-[PtCl2(Laa)2] is reported and reveals that the Pt–P bond lengths in trans-[PtCl2L2] are in the order L = Lbb < Laa < PPh3. The equilibria established when [Pt(norbornene)3] is treated with Laa or Lbb are investigated by 31P and 195Pt NMR spectroscopy and the species [PtLn(norbornene)3−n] (n = 1–3) identified. Ligands Laa and Lbb appear to have similar affinities for platinum(0). The complexes trans-[MCl(CO)(Laa)2] and trans-[MCl(CO)(Lbb)2] (M = Rh or Ir) have been synthesised and fully characterised; the values of νCO are comparable with those for analogous phosphite complexes. The ligands Laa, Lbb, P(C6H2F3-3,4,5)3 (Lccc), P{C6H4(CF3)-2}3 (Ldd), PPh3 and P(OPh)3 have been tested in rhodium-catalysed hydroformylation of 1-hexene and Laa, Lbb, and PPh3 have been tested in rhodium-catalysed hydroformylation of 4-methoxystyrene. Ligands Laa, and Lbb, have been shown to be stable under the hydroformylation catalysis conditions. For the 1-hexene reaction, the activity and selectivity for Laa and Lccc are very similar to the PPh3 catalyst (TOF ca. 400 h−1; n : iso 2.5–3.0) but for the sterically demanding Lbb and Ldd the activity and selectivity was much lower than with PPh3 (TOF ca. 15, n : iso ratio 0.6). Thus, the yield of heptanals obtained with the catalyst derived from Laa is 94% while under the same conditions with Lbb only 6%. The TOF for the Laa/Rh catalyst was 5 times lower than for the P(OPh)3/Rh catalyst despite the superficially similar ligand electronic characteristics for Laa and P(OPh)3.
