The trioxo [ReO(3){SO(3)C(pz)(3)}] (1) (pz = pyrazolyl) and oxo [ReOCl{SO(3)C(pz)(3)}(PPh(3))]Cl (2) compounds with tris(pyrazolyl)methanesulfonate were obtained by treatment of Re(2)O(7) or [ReOCl(3)(PPh(3))(2)], respectively, with Li[SO(3)C(pz)(3)], whereas [ReCl(3){HC(pz)(3)}] (3), [ReCl(3){HC(3,5-Me(2)pz)(3)}] (4) and [ReCl(4){eta(2)-HC(pz)(3)}] (5) were prepared by reaction of [ReOCl(3)(PPh(3))(2)] (3,4) or [ReCl(4)(NCMe)(2)] (5) with hydrotris(pyrazolyl)methane HC(pz)(3) (3,5) or hydrotris(3,5-dimethyl-1-pyrazolyl)methane HC(3,5-Me(2)pz)(3) (4). [ReO{SO(3)C(pz)(3)}{OC(CH(3))(2)pz}][ReO(4)] 6, with a chelated pyrazolyl-alkoxide, was derived from an unprecedented ketone-pyrazolyl coupling on reaction of crude 1 with acetone. The compounds have been characterized by elemental analyses, IR and NMR spectroscopies, FAB-MS spectrometry and cyclic voltammetry and, in the case of 5 and 6, also by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The electrochemical E(L) Lever parameter has been estimated, for the first time, for the SO(3)C(pz)(3)(-) and oxo ligands allowing the measurement of their electron-donor character and comparison with other ligands. Compounds 1, 2 and 6 appear to be the first tris(pyrazolyl)methanesulfonate complexes of rhenium to be reported.

    ABSTRACT: The pyrazole complexes [ReCl2{N2C(O)Ph}(Hpz)(PPh3)2] 2 (Hpz = pyrazole), [ReCl2{N2C(O)Ph}(Hpz)2(PPh3)] 3 and [ReClF{N2C(O)Ph}(Hpz)2(PPh3)] 4, and the tris(pyrazolyl)methane compounds [ReCl2(HCpz3)(PPh3)][BF4] 5 (pz = pyrazolyl), [ReCl3{HC(pz)3}] 7, [ReOCl2{SO3C(pz)3}(PPh3)] 8 and [ReO3{SO3C(pz)3}] 9, and their precursors [ReCl2{η2-N,O-N2C(O)Ph}(PPh3)2] 1 and [ReOCl3(PPh3)2] 6, act as selective catalysts (or catalyst precursors), in a single-pot process, for the oxidation of ethane, in the presence of potassium peroxodisulfate K2S2O8, in trifluoroacetic acid (TFA), to give acetic acid, in a remarkable yield (up to ca. 40%) and under mild conditions (in some cases carboxylation can also occur to give propionic acid, but in a much lower yield). The catalytic peroxidative oxidation of ethane to acetaldehyde and of cyclohexane to cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol by an aqueous solution of H2O2 at room temperature is also achieved by using most of those catalyst precursors. The effects of a variety of factors were studied towards the optimization of the processes which are shown to proceed via both C-centered and O-centered radical mechanisms.Graphical abstractConversion of ethane to acetic acid, using K2S2O8 as oxidant and TFA as solvent, and catalytic peroxidative oxidation of cyclohexane, using aqueous H2O2 as oxidant and acetonitrile as solvent, are catalysed by Re complexes with pyrazole or tris(pyrazolyl)methane ligands. The reactions occur via radical mechanisms and the effects of various parameters are reported.

    ABSTRACT: Reaction of [ReOCl3(PPh3)(2)] with HCpz(3) (pz = pyrazole) in dichloromethane leads to the formation of a new Re(iv) complex [ReCl3(HCpz3)]X (X=Cl, [ReO4]) with loss of the rhenium-oxo group. We also report a convenient, high-yield synthetic route to complexes of the type [ReOXn(L)](3-n)+ (X=Cl, Br, n = 2, 3) by the reaction of bis(pyrazolylmethane) and bis(pyrazolylacetate) ligands with [ReOCl3(PPh3)2]. Dinuclear complexes containing the O=Re-O-Re=O group were also isolated and structurally characterised. We have also investigated the reactions of these ligands with diazenide precursors and isolated and characterised complexes of the type [ReClx(N2Ph) (L)(PPh3)] (x = 1,2). The potential applications of these complexes as radiopharmaeuticals is discussed.
