"Transition Metal Hydrides that Mediate Catalytic Hydrogen Atom Transfers"

Presented by Deven Estes (Norton Group)

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 3:00pm
Room 209 Havemeyer

Abstract: Radical Cyclizations are important reactions in organic chemistry. However, they are seldom used industrially due to their reliance on neurotoxic trialkyltin hydrides. Transition metal hydrides with weak M-H bonds can generate carbon centered radicals by hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) to olefins. The Norton group has shown that metal to olefin hydrogen atom transfer (MOHAT) reactions can mediate radical cyclizations of dienes to form five and six membered rings. This can be done catalytically under hydrogen gas. We have outlined the qualities of a good radical cyclization catalyst and investigated the properties of some potential catalysts. I have done investigations into the M-H bond strength of CpFe(CO)2H (FpH), the mechanism of hydrogen activation by Co(dmgBF2)2(H2O)2, and the ability of CpCr(CO)3H to transfer hydrogen atoms to alkynes and shown how these findings influence the ability of these hydrides to do catalytic radical cyclizations.
