  • Catalytic nonreductive valorization of carbon dioxide into fine chemicals
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 April 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): José Enrique Gómez, Arjan W. Kleij This review describes the latest advances made in the metal-catalyzed formation of heterocycles known as cyclic organic carbonates (COCs) and their potential as modular building blocks in catalytic organic synthesis. In the first part of this overview, specific attention is given to new catalysts and concepts for the preparation of more complex, functional COCs whereas the second part focuses on the use of these functional COCs in organometallic catalysis, and specifically in emerging areas including those related to novel allylic, propargylic and C-H functionalization strategies. The assembled information on the recently disclosed potential of COCs in organic chemistry highlights a vibrant area of research with great future prospect in modern catalytic science.
  • Alkane dehydrogenation reactions catalyzed by pincer-metal complexes
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 10 April 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Kanu Das, Akshai Kumar Alkanes are inexpensive and highly abundant of which only a fraction (C9–C19) are valuable as high energy-density transportation fuels. On the other hand, the corresponding olefins are sparse but ubiquitous intermediates in the production of fuel and commodity chemicals. Methods that transform alkanes either to versatile alkenes or directly to functionalized hydrocarbons are of great potential value. In this context, molecular pincer-metal catalysts (pincer-iridium in particular) have shown great promise. This chapter provides a concise overview of alkane dehydrogenation catalyzed by pincer-metal complexes with emphasis on tandem reactions involving the upgradation of alkanes to fuel grade chemicals and aromatics. The challenges to be addressed in the ongoing need for the development of direct atom-economical functionalization of alkanes via dehydrogenation are also discussed.
  • Transition metal-catalyzed hydrogenation of carbon dioxide in ionic
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 10 April 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Muhammad I. Qadir, Rodrigo Webber, Jairton Dupont The reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) has become one of the main goals needed to overcome global warming. The transformation of CO2 into chemicals and fuels (formic acid, methanol, methane, and higher hydrocarbons) can be a resource and provide an energy-efficient future for the chemical industry. Although many catalytic methods have been developed to hydrogenate CO2 into formic acid (FA), only amine–formate adducts have been obtained. Direct CO2 hydrogenation toward higher hydrocarbons (HCs) has also been studied, but there is a substantial hurdle in controlling the selectivities, i.e., higher yields for CO and CH4, as well as the CO2 conversion to overcome the thermodynamic limitations of this transformation. These problems can, at least in part, be solved by the use of ionic liquids (ILs), which have been shown to be adequate media for the stabilization of catalytic active species and for selective control via the formation of nano-cages. Indeed, significant improvements in both catalytic activity and selectivity have been obtained by the use of ILs as catalytic supports for the production of free formic acid, methane, or heavy hydrocarbons. Moreover, transition metal catalysts confined in ILs and hybrids have been successfully used for the hydroformylation and hydroaminomethylation of alkenes employing CO2. The main achievements in the use of ILs as supports for transition metal precursor catalysts in the hydrogenation of CO2 are herein discussed in light of recent reported results.
  • Recent advances in catalytic hydrosilylation of carbonyl groups mediated
           by well-defined first-row late transition metals
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 March 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Beatriz Royo Hydrosilylation of carbonyl groups represents a useful reaction for the production of silylethers, and a convenient method to reduce carbonyl functionalities when a sequence of hydrosilylation and hydrolysis is performed. This transformation has long relied on the use of noble metal catalysts. However, the limited availability, high price and toxicity of these metals have forced to find sustainable alternatives. In this respect, reactions catalyzed by late first-row 3d metals have attracted increasing attention. In particular, the field of carbonyl hydrosilylation has experienced a tremendous development in the last decade. The aim of this review is to provide an overview of the advances made on the field of carbonyl hydrosilylation mediated by well-defined Mn, Fe, Co and Ni complexes during the last 10 years. Special attention is paid to the mechanistic aspects of the catalytic reaction.
  • Water oxidation at base metal molecular catalysts
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 March 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Julio Lloret-Fillol, Miquel Costas Artificial photosynthesis is envisioned as a promising strategy to convert sunlight, a practically unlimited and sustainable source of energy, into chemical fuels. In this scheme, the oxidation of water molecules is necessary to provide the electrons than will be employed in the synthesis of chemical fuels. Water oxidation is a particularly challenging reaction because it is a thermodynamically uphill multielectronic process with large activation barriers, but it is key for the realization of artificial photosynthesis because water is the only earth abundant molecule that can provide electrons in a massive and sustainable manner. Therefore, catalysts are needed for eluding the large intrinsic kinetic barriers of the reaction. In nature, water oxidation is catalyzed by a Mn tetrameric species, which enables O–O formation under the inherent mild physiological conditions trough a putative high valent manganese oxo species. Taking natural water oxidation as model, molecular catalysts operating under homogeneous conditions have been explored with the objective of providing basic understanding at molecular scale of the factors that govern this reaction, which eventually will receive utility in the design of efficient water oxidation devices. Traditionally, water oxidation has been studied with ruthenium and manganese based systems, but more recently attention has been shifted toward catalysts based on iridium and first row transition metals: the former due to their extraordinary performance and the latter because of their favorable cost, availability and environmental impact when compared with second and third row transition metals. The topic has been very actively explored and important lessons have been gained. Catalysts based on first row transition metals poise specific problems in terms of stability because generally their metal-ligand bonds are labile and because reaching their high oxidation states require high oxidation potentials. Consequently, high valent states of these metals are exceedingly reactive, readily prone to engage in oxidative decomposition paths. Catalyst design is crucial for circumventing these problems and has enabled the discovery of extraordinarily reactive yet reasonably stable catalysts, comparable to the best examples based on second and third row transition metals. The following chapter reviews key contributions to the field. The manuscript does not intend to be comprehensive, but instead, selected and in our opinion representative examples are discussed.
  • Surface coordination chemistry on graphene and two-dimensional carbon
           materials for well-defined single atom supported catalysts
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 6 March 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): M. Rosa Axet, Jerome Durand, Maryse Gouygou, Philippe Serp Immobilization of transition metal complexes or single metallic atoms on graphene-based materials for catalytic applications is a topic of intensive research. Graphene-based materials such as few layer graphene, graphene oxide, graphdiyne or graphitic carbon nitride offer large possibilities to tune the environment of the metallic center and additionally provide specific electronic interactions, which can be exploited in thermal-, electro-, and photocatalysis. The synthesis of such well-defined single atom supported catalysts as well as the role of such species in catalysis is reviewed in this contribution.
  • Gold and platinum alkynyl complexes for biomedical applications
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 March 2019Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Elena Cerrada, Vanesa Fernández-Moreira, M. Concepción Gimeno Metal alkynyl complexes have many opportunities to offer in the development of new metal-based chemotherapeutic agents, especially for gold and platinum derivatives, whose complexes present a great stability due to the MCCR bonds. This review covers the chemistry of gold and platinum complexes bearing alkynyl ligands that present antitumor activity. Additionally, platinum compounds are promising candidates to be used as photosensitizers in photodynamic therapy with easily tuneable photophysical properties.
  • Ylidic Cp-Ligands: Properties and New Developments
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 October 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Doris Kunz, Fabio Mazzotta This review gives an overview over the synthesis, properties, and new developments of fulvenes and fulvalenes as well as ammonium, pyridinium, phosphonium, and sulfonium cyclopentadienylides with respect to their use as (potential) ligands in addition reactions for the synthesis of cyclopentadienide complexes. The syntheses and properties of Cp-complexes bearing α-onium substituents (not necessarily prepared from the free onium-cyclopentadienylides) are also reviewed, and a comparison of the electronic properties of the ligands on the metal fragment is given. Other group 15 and group 16 as well as group 17 onium-cyclopentadienylides are also mentioned.
  • C–H Bond Activation Mediated by Inorganic and Organometallic
           Compounds of Main Group Metals
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 October 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Ciprian I. Raț, Albert Soran, Richard A. Varga, Cristian Silvestru This review provides an overview of some aspects, including most recent studies, regarding the C–H bond activation/functionalization of saturated or unsaturated hydrocarbons as well as functionalized organic substrates using either inorganic or organometallic compounds of main group metals/metalloids (i.e., silicon, germanium, antimony) or Group 12 metals. Processes in which a metal-containing species was employed as reagent or as catalyst were considered. When available, data regarding the optimization of the reactions or the mechanistic aspects are presented. Although C–H bond activation is mainly achieved using transition metal complexes, the available data suggested that main group metals and their compounds can provide not only a cheaper but often also an attractive alternative for synthetic chemists.
  • Carbon Dioxide Electroreduction Catalyzed by Organometallic Complexes
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 September 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Sergio Gonell, Alexander J.M. Miller The development of molecular organometallic electrocatalysts for the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) is reviewed. Organometallic complexes are a promising subset of the many catalysts capable of electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to organic small molecules such as carbon monoxide (CO), formate (HCO2−), and oxalate (C2O42−). The carbon-based supporting ligands of organometallic complexes provide electron-rich metal centers and engender good chemical stability, factors that help place organometallic catalysts among the most impressive molecular systems for CO2 reduction. This chapter provides a comprehensive review of CO2 electroreduction by organometallic complexes, defined as those containing metal–carbon bonds in the supporting ligands.
  • Single-Electron Elementary Steps in Homogeneous Organometallic Catalysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 3 September 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Nicolaas P. van Leest, Roel F.J. Epping, Kaj M. van Vliet, Marianne Lankelma, Eline J. van den Heuvel, Nicol Heijtbrink, Richard Broersen, Bas de Bruin Nature solves some of its most difficult and most interesting problems using one-electron (viz. radical) processes. Metalloenzymes catalyze radical reactions with high chemo-, regio-, diastereo-, and enantioselectivity by making use of several important tools, which are in particular (i) catalytic generation of radicals, (ii) shielding of the active site, (iii) substrate preorganization through interactions with specific amino acid residues, and (iv) interaction of the substrate with the metal d-orbitals. Whereas natural metalloenzymes contain exclusively earth abundant, inexpensive first-row transition metals, it remains a challenge to steer and control radical reactions with synthetic organometallic complexes based on these metals. In pursuit of performing chemical transformations at the minimum cost of energy and feedstocks, metalloenzymes thus serve as an important source of inspiration for the development of new base metal-catalyzed radical-type reactions. This chapter is intended as a tutorial overview of one-electron reactivity in contemporary fundamental research on homogeneous catalysis. Recent examples, possibilities, and limitations are discussed, aiming to bring together different threads and stimulate new work on the frontiers of metalloradical catalysis.
  • Chapter Five - Metallate Complexes of the Late Transition Metals:
           Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic Chemistry, Volume 69Author(s): Adrián Gómez-Suárez, David J. Nelson, Steven P. Nolan The synthesis of late transition metallates as well as the role of such species in catalysis is described in this contribution. Their involvement in numerous transition metal-mediated transformations is more significant than thought and could represent a novel starting point from which catalysis can be launched.
  • Chapter Four - Current Mechanistic Understanding of Cobalt-Catalyzed
           C–H Functionalization
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic Chemistry, Volume 69Author(s): Oriol Planas, Paula G. Chirila, Christopher J. Whiteoak, Xavi Ribas Arguably, one of the biggest advancements in synthetic chemistry over recent decades, has been the development of Pd cross-coupling procedures. The application of Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions is nowadays a powerful and widely applied tool during the preparation of a wide range of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and synthetic intermediates. Recently, the use of cheaper, more abundant, and less toxic first-row transition metals to replace more expensive Pd has started to attract significant attention. While at the same time, direct C–H functionalization to replace the necessity of halogenated precursors is also a topic of interest in order to develop cleaner and more environmentally friendly procedures. In this context, cobalt-catalyzed C–H functionalization has provided a platform to address these desires. The mechanistic diversity of newly developed protocols using cobalt is quite extraordinary and more varied than when applying the corresponding second and third row analogs. This overview seeks to exemplify and highlight the potential of cobalt as the basis for C–H functionalization protocols, focusing on the wide range of mechanisms available arising from the rich redox chemistry of this metal.
  • Chapter Three - Recent Advances in the Synthesis of C–S Bonds via
           Metal-Catalyzed or -Mediated Functionalization of C–H Bonds
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Organometallic Chemistry, Volume 69Author(s): Shuai Liang, Saad Shaaban, Nai-Wei Liu, Kamil Hofman, Georg Manolikakes Sulfur-containing organic molecules play a prominent role in chemistry and biology. The presence of sulfur atoms is essential for the structure and thus the activity of many proteins. Sulfur-based compounds are used as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, or for materials with interesting physical or electronic properties. The synthesis of the C–S bond via the selective activation of C–H bonds is becoming an increasingly attractive alternative to classical procedures based on prefunctionalized starting materials. Within the last decade, significant progress has been made in this field. This review covers recent advances in the field of C–S bond-forming reaction via metal-catalyzed functionalization of C–H bonds and the utilization of these methods in the construction of sulfur-containing heterocycles. Problems often associated with organosulfur compounds as well as limitations of the current methods and future areas of research in this field will be discussed.
