|Title:||CpMn(CO)3-catalyzed photoconversion of thiols into disulfides and dihydrogen|
|Citation:||Tan, K.Y.D., Kee, J.W., Fan, W.Y. (2010-10-25). CpMn(CO)3-catalyzed photoconversion of thiols into disulfides and dihydrogen. Organometallics 29 (20) : 4459-4463. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1021/om1005947|
|Abstract:||The UV photolysis of CpMn(CO)3 with thiols at room temperature effected the following catalytic transformation: 2 RSH → R 2S2 + H2. This reaction is a cleaner and greener way toward making disulfides, as it produces dihydrogen as the only side-product. The manganese system exhibits high chemoselectivity as the transformation proceeds efficiently even in the presence of numerous functional groups. A manganese dicarbonyl complex, CpMn(CO)2RSH, and cyclopentadiene have also been detected using FTIR and NMR spectroscopic techniques, respectively. Based on our experimental data, a mechanism has been proposed to account for the catalysis. © 2010 American Chemical Society.|
