Abstract

Oxidadve addiion of iodoarenes to bis(dibenzylideneacetone)palladium(0) in the presence of N.N. N’,N’-tetramethylethylenediamine (tmeda) affords PdIAr(tmeda) (Ar = 4-MeC6H4, 4-MeOC6H4, 4-Me(O)C6H4, 4-O2NC6H4, 3-MeOC6H4) in high yield. Some of these complexes (Ar = 4-MeC6H4, 4-MeOC6H4, 3-MeOC6H4) react with LiMe to form PdMeAr(tmeda), and the methyl(aryl)palladium(II) complexes react wbb 2,2’-bipyridyl (bpy) or 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) to afford PdMeAr(L2): PdMePh(phen) may be obtained similarly. All of the diorganopalladium(II) complexes of bpy and phen react with benzyl bromide to form PdBrMeAr(CH2Ph)(L2) but a complex could not be isolated for Ar = 3-MeOC6H4, L2 = bpy. The isolated palladium(IV) complexes react wbh PdMe2(bpy) at -20°C in (CD3)2C0 to selectively transfer henzy1 bromide to give PdMeAr(L2) and PdBrMe2(CH2Ph)(bpy) respctively. The complexes PdBrMeAr(CH2Ph)(bpy) (Ar = Pb, 4-MeC6H4. 4MeOC6H4) undergo selective reductive elimination of Ar-Me in CDCl3 to form PdBr(CH2Ph)(L2), but PdBrMeAr(CH2Ph)(phen) (Ar = Ph. 4-MeC6H4, 4-MeOC6H4, 3-MeOC6H4) give mixtures of PdBr(CH2Ph)(phen) and Me-Ar togaher with lesser amounts of PdBrMe(phen) and Ar-CH2Ph (ca. 10-20%).
