Abstract

The reactivity and ligand dynamics of the mu(3)-eta(2)-imidoyl clusters Ru-3(CO)(9)(mu(3)-eta(2)-RC=NR')(mu-H) (R = CH3, R' = Et 2; RR' = (CH2)(3), 3; RR' = (CH2)(2)C(H)CH2OCH3 4, R = R' = CH3, 5) are compared with the previously reported osmium analogs. The lowest energy dynamical process in these clusters is the ''windshield wiper'' motion over the face of the cluster whereas tripodal rotation of the carbonyl groups on the unbridged metal atom is the fastest process in the analogous osmium compounds. Although the structures of the phosphine and isocyanide substitution products reported, Ru-3(CO)(8)(mu(3)-eta(2)-RC=NR')(mu-H)L (R = CH3, R' = CH2CH3, L = PPh3 (So), L = CNMe (12); R = R' = (CH2)(3), L = PPh3 (9), L = CNMe (13); R = R' = CH3, L = PPh3 (10), are identical to their osmium analogs, the pathway to their formation reflects the lower CO dissociation energies for ruthenium clusters and a greater sensitivity to the substituents on the imidoyl group. The solid state structures of 9 and 12 are reported as well as that of Os-3(CO)(8)(mu-eta(2)-C=N(CH2)(3)(mu-H)(PPh3)(MeNC) (15). The latter illustrates the hemilabile nature of the mu(3)-imidoyl ligand even in phosphine-substituted derivatives and the structural preferences of phosphine and isocyanide ligands in this class of clusters.
