Abstract

A number of group 4 metalloporphyrin diolate complexes were synthesized via various approaches. For example, treatment of imido complex (TTP)HfNAriPr with diols resulted in formation of the corresponding diolato complexes (TTP)Hf[OCR1R2CR1R2O] (R1 = R2 = Me, 1; R1 = Me, R2 = Ph, 2; R1 = R2 = Ph, 3). Treatment of (TTP)TiNiPr with diols generated (TTP)Ti[OCR1R2CR1R2O] (R1 = R2 = Me, 5; R1 = Me, R2 = Ph, 6; R1 = H, R2 = Ph, 7; R1 = H, R2= p-tolyl, 8). Alternatively hafnium and titanium pinacolates 1 and 5 were prepared through metathetical reactions of (TTP)MCl2 (M = Hf, Ti) with disodium pinacolate. The substitution chemistry of hafnium complexes correlated well with the basicity of the diolato ligands. Complexes 16 underwent oxidative cleavage reaction, producing carbonyl compounds and oxometalloporphyrin species. For less substituted diolates 7 and 8, an array of products including the enediolate complexes (TTP)Ti[OC(Ar)C(Ar)O] (Ar = Ph, 9; Ar = p-tolyl, 10) was observed. The possible cleavage reaction pathways are discussed.
