The clusters are useful for facile activation of a Si-H bond of organosilanes, and application of this activation process to catalysis has provided (1) catalytic hydrosilylation of alkenes, alkynes, ketones, (2) catalytic reduction of carboxylic acids, esters, and amides, and (3) silane-induced polymerization of cyclic ethers, cyclic siloxanes, and vinyl ethers.

  • Highly reactive ruthenium amidinate complexes: foundamentals and applications.
    keyword : ruthenium amidinate complexes
    1999.04~2008.10Mono- and dinuclear ruthenium amidinate complexes have been developed with the purpose of exploration of highly reactive molecular catalysts. Two types of mononuclear ruthenium amidinates have been synthesized and characterized, which have 16 valence electrons and coordinatively unsaturated nature. The complexes are highly active towards various two electron donor ligands, organic oxidants, and diazo compounds. They are also reactive with certain transition metal species; the reaction gives a new dinuclear ruthenium amidinate, which is a good precursor for coordinatively unsaturated diruthenium amidinates. Besides unique structures of these dinuclear complexes, their high reactivity contributes to finding their catalysis; catalytic chemical transformation of allylic compounds, radical cyclization of N-polyhaloacetamides (research 3) and polymerization initiated by organic halide initiators..

    2001.04Two new reactions leading to synthesis of heterobimetallic complexes containing titanium and other transition metals have been developed. One reaction is titanium(III)-complexes induced metal-metal bond cleavage of metal carbonyl dimers, which results in formation of Ti-Mo, Ti-W, Ti-Ru, and Ti-Co heterobimetallic complexes. The other is formation of Ti-Pt and Ti-Pd heterobimetallic complexes having a bridging phosphoamide ligands. These new complexes are expected to have cooperative reactivity of dual metals in one organometallic molecules for capture of organic substrates, and reactions and catalysis of these new complexes are now under study..
  • Photoreactive organometallic complexes
    keyword : Photoreactive organometallic complexes
    2001.04~2006.03Thermally reversible photoisomerization of dinuclear organometallic complexes have been investigated. Diiron or diruthenium carbonyl complexes bound to bridging acenaphthylene or azulene ligands are one of the target, of which two haptotropic isomers are interconverted both thermally and photochemically. A diiron complex bonding to acenaphthylene is a special complex showing complete reversal of the isomer ratios between the thermal and photochemical processes in both solution and solid states. In particular, the photo/ thermal cycle can be repeated over ten times in solid sample dispersed in a KBr pellet, which is monitored by IR detection. A principle of other organometallic photoswitch has been proposed in a photo-assisted formation of a Ti-Ru heterobimetallic complex shown in research 5, in which the Ti-Ru complex is formed photochemically with decrease of magnetism due to the Ti(III) species, whereas thermal reverse reaction occurs in the dark..

Yusuke Sunada, Hajime Ogushi, Taiji Yamamoto, Shoko Uto, Mina Sawano, Atsushi Tahara, Hiromasa Tanaka, Yoshihito Shiota, Kazunari Yoshizawa, Hideo Nagashima, Disilaruthena- and Ferracyclic Complexes Containing Isocyanide Ligands as Effective Catalysts for Hydrogenation of Unfunctionalized Sterically Hindered Alkenes, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 10.1021/jacs.8b00812, 140, 11, 4119-4134, 2018.03, Disilaferra- and disilaruthenacyclic complexes containing mesityl isocyanide as a ligand, 3′ and 4′, were synthesized and characterized by spectroscopy and crystallography. Both 3′ and 4′ showed excellent catalytic activity for the hydrogenation of alkenes. Compared with iron and ruthenium carbonyl analogues, 1′ and 2′, the isocyanide complexes 3′ and 4′ were more robust under the hydrogenation conditions, and were still active even at higher temperatures (∼80 °C) under high hydrogen pressure (∼20 atm). The iron complex 3′ exhibited the highest catalytic activity toward hydrogenation of mono-, di-, tri-, and tetrasubstituted alkenes among currently reported iron catalysts. Ruthenium complex 4′ catalyzed hydrogenation under very mild conditions, such as room temperature and 1 atm of H2. The remarkably high catalytic activity of 4′ for hydrogenation of unfunctionalized tetrasubstituted alkenes was especially notable, because it was comparable to the activity of iridium complexes reported by Crabtree and Pfaltz, which are catalysts with the highest activity in the literature. DFT calculations suggested two plausible catalytic cycles, both of which involved activation of H2 assisted by the metal-silicon bond through σ-bond metathesis of late transition metals (oxidative hydrogen migration). The linear structure of M C≡N - C (ipso carbon of the mesityl group) played an essential role in the efficient hydrogenation of sterically hindered tetrasubstituted alkenes..

Yusuke Sunada, Hideo Nagashima, Disilametallacyclic chemistry for efficient catalysis, Dalton Transactions, 10.1039/c7dt01275f, 46, 24, 7644-7655, 2017.07, This article discusses two new features of disilametallacyclic chemistry that contribute to the development of efficient catalytic reactions in organic synthesis. The first is disilametallacyclic intermediates in the hydrosilane reduction of carbonyl compounds. Experimental and theoretical studies on disilaplatinacycles suggested that the H2Pt(iv)Si2 species generated by oxidative addition of 1,2-bis(dimethylsilyl)benzene behaves as a highly reactive hydride to reduce amides to amines. This mechanism via disilametallacyclic intermediates explains the efficient hydrosilane reduction of carbonyl compounds with α,ω-bifunctional hydrosilanes catalyzed by other transition metals. The second is hydrogenation of alkenes by disilaferra- or disilaruthenacyclic complexes as catalyst precursors. A new mechanism not involving the conventional oxidative addition of H2 was suggested from DFT calculations, in which activation of the H-H bond occurs in the metal-silicon bond of the disilametallacyclic intermediate. Disilametallacyclic intermediates contribute to efficient catalytic reactions through this σ-CAM (σ-complex assisted mechanism) type mechanism..

Experimental and theoretical studies, Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan, 10.1246/bcsj.20170004, 90, 5, 613-626, 2017.05, The hydrogenation of alkenes catalyzed by disilametallacyclic carbonyl complexes of iron, ruthenium or osmium was studied experimentally and theoretically. The disilaruthenacycle 2 with two CO ligands in the trans-configuration was prepared, characterized, and its ability to catalyze hydrogenation was studied. Similar to the corresponding iron analogue 1 in which the CO ligands are in the cis-configuration, 2 contains a H2MSi4 core with SiHSi SISHA (secondary interaction of silicon and hydrogen atoms) and catalyzed the hydrogenation of several alkenes under mild conditions. DFT calculations of 1 and 2 with cis- and trans-CO configurations (cis-1, trans-1, cis-2 and trans-2) revealed that the mechanism of ethylene hydrogenation comprises three catalytic cycles, and a key step involves the H-H bond of H2 being activated by an M-Si bond through oxidative hydrogen migration. These mechanisms are a variety of α-CAM (complex-assisted metathesis) mechanisms. Further calculations suggest that these catalytic cycles can apply to the catalytic hydrogenation of ethylene by osmium analogues of 1 and 2 (cis-3 and trans-3). Some of the elementary reactions in the cycles are dependent on the metal, and the osmium complexes show different performance from the iron and ruthenium analogues due to the characteristic natures of the third-row transition metals..
4. Hideo Nagashima, Catalyst design of iron complexes, Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan, 10.1246/bcsj.20170071, 90, 7, 761-775, 2017.01, Despite worldwide interest from synthetic chemists, the rational design of catalytically active organoiron species remains problematic. While noble metal catalysis proceeds through diamagnetic low-spin intermediates, iron species are often in the high or intermediate spin states, which are paramagnetic and difficult to analyze. Possible spin change during catalysis also complicates the problem. This report describes two extremes for the catalyst design of iron complexes. One involves diamagnetic 14-electron iron(II) species useful for two-electron chemistry often seen in noble metal catalysis. The disilaferracyclic carbonyl complex 4 is a good catalyst precursor, and shows good catalytic performance for the hydrogenation and hydrosilylation of alkenes, and the hydrosilane reduction of carbonyl compounds. Based on DFT calculations, mechanisms involving ·-CAM (sigma-complex-assisted metathesis) for the hydrogenation and hydrosilane reduction are suggested. Further catalyst design inspired by the success of 4 led to the discovery of iron and cobalt catalyst systems composed of metal carboxylates and isocyanide ligands leading to a practical substitute for industrially useful platinum catalysts for hydrosilylation with hydrosiloxanes. The second approach involves paramagnetic 16-electron iron (II) catalyst species. A series of "(R3TACN)FeX2" complexes were prepared and found to be good catalysts for atom transfer radical polymerization, giving rise to well-controlled polymerization of styrene, methacrylates, and acrylates with high activity. Moreover, the catalyst could be easily removed from the polymer and was reusable. Mechanistic studies of iron-catalyzed crosscoupling reactions in collaboration with Nakamura and Takaya opened a new approach to the catalyst design of unknown spin states by using new analytical methods for paramagnetic species in the solution state..

Can the Fe-Si σ-Bond-Assisted Activation of H-H Bonds Allow Development of a Catalysis of Iron?, Journal of Organic Chemistry, 10.1021/acs.joc.6b01961, 81, 22, 10900-10911, 2016.11, The mechanisms associated with the hydrogenation of alkenes catalyzed by the iron complex Fe(cis-CO)2{o-(SiMe2)2C6H4}2(H)2 (1) were investigated by DFT calculations. The complex 1 has a structure in which the iron center is bonded to four silicon atoms and two hydrides. Secondary Si···H···Si interactions were also observed. The exchange of a 1,2-bis(dimethylsilyl)benzene ligand with ethylene and hydrogen gives a disilaferracycle bearing η2-(CH2=CH2) and η2-H2 ligands. The catalytic cycle initiated from the disilaferracycle involves cleavage of a H-H linkage assisted by an Fe-Si bond to form Fe-H and η1-(H-Si) moieties (step 1), hydrogen migration from the Fe-H group to the η2-(CH2=CH2) ligand which accomplishes the insertion of ethylene into the Fe-H bond (step 2), and reaction of the resulting β-agostic ethyl moiety with the η2-(H-Si) group to form ethane on the iron atom (step 3). The octahedral geometry of 1 as well as the presence of π-acidic CO ligands and Fe-Si σ-bonds contributes to all of the catalytic intermediates and the transition states being in the low-spin state. Steps 1 and 3 correspond to the σ-complex-assisted metathesis (σ-CAM) mechanisms proposed by Perutz and Sabo-Etienne, suggesting that these mechanisms can assist in the design of iron-based hydrogenation catalysts operating under mild conditions..
