Synthesis of the Ruᴵⱽ amido complex [TpRu(CO)(PPh₃)(NHPh)][OTf]₂ (Tp = hydridotris(pyrazolyl)borate; OTf = trifluoromethanesulfonate) and deprotonation to form an octahedral and d⁴ imido complex: computational study of Ruᴵⱽ–imido bonding

Abstract:
Deprotonation of [TpRu(CO)(PPh₃)(NHPh)][OTf]₂ yields the thermally unstable d⁴ imido complex [TpRu(CO)(PPh₃)(NPh)][OTf]; a computational study of the bonding of the imido complex provides a foundation for discussion of its instability in terms of π-conflict.
