Reaction of CO and tert-butyl isocyanide with the cluster [(C 5Me5)3Co3(μ2-H) 3(μ3-H)] facile hydrogen transfer to isocyanide forms [(C5Me5)3Co3 (μ-H) (μ3-η2 -HC=NCMe3)]

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The reaction of [(C Me ) Co (μ-2-H) (μ -H)] 1 with 2 equiv. of CO forms the biscarbonyl dihydride cluster [(C Me ) Co (μ -CO) (μ -CO)(μ-H) ] 2; tert-butyl isocyanide inserts into a Co-H bond of 1 to form the formimidoyl monohydride cluster [(C Me ) Co (μ-H)(μ -η -HC= NCMe )] 5, via the intermediate [(C Me ) Co (μ -CNCMe ) (μ -CNCMe )(μ-H) ] 6. 5 5 3 3 3 3 5 5 3 3 3 2 2 5 5 3 3 3 3 5 5 3 3 3 3 2 3 2 2
