Abstract

The novel Pd(0)-azobenzene complex (ITMe)2Pd(PhN=NPh) (5) (ITMe = 1,3,4,5-tetramethylimidazol 2-ylidene) has been isolated and characterized in the solid state and by cyclic voltammetry. Its reactivity towards E-E’ bonds (E, E’= Si, B, Ge) has been compared with that of the known palladium carbene complex (ITMe)2Pd(PhC≡CPh) (2). Whereas 2 reacts with all E-E’ bonds studied, 5 only reacted with B-B and B-Si moieties, echoing our previous catalytic studies on azobenzenes.
