Abstract

{Rh-containing metallacycles, [(TPA)Rh(III) (κ(2) -(C,N)-CH2 CH2 (NR)2 -]Cl; TPA=N,N,N,N-tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine have been accessed through treatment of the Rh(I) ethylene complex, [(TPA)Rh(η(2) -CH2 CH2 )]Cl ([1]Cl) with substituted diazenes. We show this methodology to be tolerant of electron-deficient azo compounds including azo diesters (RCO2 NNCO2 R; R=Et [3]Cl
