Transcript 121. Acceptorless Dehydrogenation with Metal
Acceptorless Dehydrogenation with Metal-Ligand Cooperation Strategy by Aromatization-Dearomatization Zhou Xiao-Le 2014.06.21
Brief introduction to AD
Long-Range Metal-Ligand Cooperation
Brief Introduction Dehydrogenation: basic oxidation reaction in organic chemistry Oxidant or sacrificial hydrogen acceptor was used to absorb the H.
In acceptorless dehydrogenation, H was released as hydrogen or was in situ consumption and no net hydrogen gas is liberated David Milstein Michael J. Krische Alan S. Goldman

The Thermodynamic Reason for the Problems of the Dehydrogenation reaction The ΔH of some chemical bonds:
C-C C=C C-H H-H
342 613 416 435.9
Let’s start from the reaction : ΔH = (ε C-C +6ε C-H )-(ε C=C +4ε C-H +ε H-H ) = (342+6*416)-(613+4*416+435.9) = +125.1 kJ/mol ΔG of a spontaneous reaction must be minus, that is: ΔG = ΔH-TΔS < 0 Problems: Slow rates, harsh conditions, low number of turnovers, and catalyst instability.
ΔS > 0, and ΔH >> 0, so T have to >> 0 to make ΔG < 0. That is the same to say: A strong heat was need to make the reaction proceed.
Proposed Mechanism of Transfer Dehydrogenation (TD) or Acceptorless Dehydrogenation (AD) No structural changes of ligands in the reaction

Efficiency of the Metal-ligand Cooperation catalysts are quite high. Catalysts load can be as high as 0.1%.
Scope of the substrates are quite large. Aryl, alkyl, alkeyl(some examples) are both appropriate substituent groups of the substrates.
Detailed studied about the operation pattern of catalysts will be a new orientation in modern chemistry.
The majority of the reactions are activation of X-H(O-H or N-H), and formation of C-X bonds. Few applications in alkane metathesis failed to make good yield and selectivity.
Achiral pincer-ligands occupying more orbitals makes it hard to control the stereoselectivity in C-C bond formation.
