Abstract

Kinetic studies on the H-2-hydrogenation of styrene catalyzed by [RuCl(dppb)(mu-Cl)](2) (dppb = Ph(2)P(CH2)(4)PPh(2)) in N,N-dimethylacetamide solution, near ambient conditions have revealed a first-order dependence on Ru, and dependences on H-2 and on styrene that are first-order at lower concentrations and decrease with increasing concentration. Considered along with NMR and tensiometric data, the findings are interpreted in terms of a basic hydride route in which an initially formed, dinuclear, molecular hydrogen complex (eta(2)-H-2)Ru(dppb)(mu-Cl)(3)RuCl(dppb) transfers both hydrogens to the styrene.
