Abstract

A family of ruthenium alkylidene complexes, (H 2IMes)RuCl 2(=CHR)(3-bromopyridine) 2, where R = Me, Et, nPr, as well as the corresponding PCys complexes, (H 2IMes)RuCl 2(=CHR) (PCy 3), have been prepared. The PCys alkylidene complexes exhibit much higher stoichiometric reactivity than does the analogous benzylidene complex, reflecting faster dissociation of PCy 3 from the alkylidene complexes.
