    • Abstract


      The reactions of cyclodiphosphazanes, cis-[(${}^t$BuN-𝜇)2(PNC4H8O)2] (1, R = NC4H8O; 2, R = NC4H8NMe ) (2) with [{RhCl(COD)}2] and [{RhCl(CO)2}2] are described. The reactions of 1 or 2 with [{RhCl(COD)}2] in 2:1 molar ratio yielded the mononuclear complexes [(COD)RhCl{(𝜇-N$^t$BuP)2(NC4H8X)2}] (3, X = O; 4, X = NMe) in good yield. Treatment of one equivalent of [{RhCl(CO)2}2] with four equivalents of 1 or 2 produced the trans-[(CO)RhCl{(𝜇-N$^t$BuP)2(NC4H8X)2}2] (5, X = O; 6, X = NMe) complexes as pale yellow solids. On changing the molar ratio of [{RhCl(CO)2}2] and 1 or 2 from 1:4 to 1:1 resulted in the formation of tetranuclear complexes [{(CO)Rh(𝜇-Cl)(𝜇-N$^t$BuP)(NC4H8X)$\}_4$] (7, X = O; 8, X = NMe) under similar reaction conditions. The tetranuclear rhodium(I) complex 8 upon stirring with wet acetonitrile or in the presence of four equivalents of water at room temperature afforded a novel hydroxo bridged zwitterionic dirhodium(I) complex [{(ClRh(CO))2(𝜇-OH)(MeNC4H8N)(𝜇-N$^t$BuP)2(NC4H8NHMe)}] (9). The crystal structures of 5, 6 and 9 were established by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies.
