Abstract

A novel rhenium complex bearing a non-innocent PNP pincer ligand was prepared. This novel catalyst is active in hydrogen autotransfer reactions to form new C-C and C-N bonds. More specifically, valuable alkylations of ketones and sulfonamides with primary alcohols are herein presented. In addition, the first examples of rhenium-catalysed synthesis of pyrroles are described by dehydrogenative coupling of diols, amines and ketones.
