Abstract

A 2-rhodaoxetane was found to react with unsaturated electrophiles, such as highly electron-deficient acetylene dicarboxylates, CS2 and various aldehydes, to form a series of six-membered metallacycles. These metallacycles were characterized by H-1, C-13 and 2D NMR spectroscopic techniques, as well as HRMS and, for one complex, XRD. In some cases, the insertions were found to be reversible.
