  1. The dioxomolybdenum( vi ) complex MoO 2 Cl 2 (dmf) 2 reacts with Pb(DOPO Q ) 2 (DOPO = 2,4,6,8-tetra- tert -butyl-1,9-dioxophenoxazinate) to give MoO 2 (DOPO Q ) 2 , which has an eight-coordinate structure with normal molybdenum-oxo bond distances and angles but elongated distances to the dioxophenoxazine ligand. The dioxo complex is deoxygenated by phosphines to produce octahedral Mo(DOPO Cat ) 2 , in which reduction has taken place at the ancillary ligands. This compound in turn reacts with trimethylamine- N -oxide to regenerate MoO 2 (DOPO Q ) 2 , allowing a catalytic cycle for phosphine oxidation. This represents an example of four-electron nonclassical oxygen atom transfer in which both the oxidized and reduced forms of the metal complexes can be observed.

  2. The bis(aminophenol) 2,2′-biphenylbis(3,5-di- tert -butyl-2-hydroxyphenylamine) (ClipH 4 ) forms trans -(Clip)Os(py) 2 upon aerobic reaction of the ligand with {( p -cymene)OsCl 2 } 2 in the presence of pyridine and triethylamine. A more oxidized species, cis -β-(Clip)Os(OCH 2 CH 2 O), is formed from reaction of the ligand with the osmium( vi ) complex OsO(OCH 2 CH 2 O) 2 , and reacts with Me 3 SiCl to give the chloro complex cis -β-(Clip)OsCl 2 . Octahedral osmium and ruthenium tris-iminoxolene complexes are formed from the chelating ligand tris(2-(3′,5′-di- tert -butyl-2′-hydroxyphenyl)amino-4-methylphenyl)amine (MeClampH 6 ) on aerobic reaction with divalent metal precursors. The complexes’ structural and electronic features are well described using a simple bonding model that emphasizes the covalency of the π bonding between the metal and iminoxolene ligands rather than attempting to dissect the parts into discrete oxidation states. Emphasizing the continuity of bonding between disparate complexes, the structural data from a variety of Os and Ru complexes show good correlations to π bond order, and the response of the intraligand bond distances to the bond order can be analyzed to illuminate the polarity of the bonding between metal and the redox-active orbital on the iminoxolenes. The osmium compounds’ π bonding orbitals are about 40% metal-centered and 60% ligand-centered, with the ruthenium compounds’ orbitals about 65% metal-centered and 35% ligand-centered.

  3. 2-(Arylamino)-4,6-di- tert -butylphenols containing 4-substituted phenyl groups ( R apH 2 ) react with oxobis(ethylene glycolato)osmium( vi ) in acetone to give square pyramidal bis(amidophenoxide)oxoosmium( vi ) complexes. A mono-amidophenoxide complex is observed as an intermediate in these reactions. Reactions in dichloromethane yield the diolate ( H ap) 2 Os(OCH 2 CH 2 O). Both the glycolate and oxo complex are converted to the corresponding cis -dichloride complex on treatment with chlorotrimethylsilane. The novel bis(aminophenol) ligand EganH 4 , containing an ethylene glycol dianthranilate bridge, forms the chelated bis(amidophenoxide) complex (Egan)OsO, where the two nitrogen atoms of the tetradentate ligand bind in the trans positions of the square pyramid. Structural and spectroscopic features of the complexes are described well by an osmium( vi )-amidophenoxide formulation, with the amount of π donation from ligand to metal increasing markedly as the co-ligands change from oxo to diolate to dichloride. In the oxo-bis(amidophenoxides), the symmetry of the ligand π orbitals results in only one effective π donor interaction, splitting the energy of the two osmium-oxo π* orbitals and rendering the osmium-oxo bonding appreciably anisotropic.
