Chem. 1994,33, 6278-6288 Influence of Chloride versus Hydride on H-H Bonding and Acidity of the Trans Dihydrogen Ligand in the Complexes trans-[Ru(Hz)X(PR2CH2CHflR&]+, X = C1, H, R = Ph, Et. Crystal Structure Determinations of [RuCl(dppe)z]PF6 and trans- [ Ru(Hz)Cl(dppe)z]PF6 Bain Chin, Alan J. Lough, Robert H. Morris,' Caroline T. Schweitzer, and Cinzia D'Agostino Department of Chemistry and Scarborough Campus, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1A1, Canada Received April 22, 1994@ The complex [RuCl(dppe)z]PF, 1, dppe = Ph2PCH2CH2PPh2, is prepared by reacting cis-RuClz(dppe)2 with NaPF6. It has a distorted trigonal bipyramidal geometry with a Ru(P)2Cl Y shaped equatorial plane. In weakly coordinating solvents it is mainly five-coordinate. Under FAB MS conditions it is ionized to [RuCl(PFs)(dppe)2]+. It reacts with C1- or L = CO, CH3CN to give complexes cis-RuCl~(dppe)2 or cis-[Ru(Cl)(L)(dppe)2]PF6, respectively. Dihydrogen reacts with 1 o give trans-[Ru(H2)Cl(dppe)2]PFa, 2a. The reaction of HA, A = BF4 or PF6, with complexes truns-RuH(Cl)(dppe)2 or trans-RuHCl(depe)z, depe = PEt2CH2CH2PEt2, gives dihydrogen complexes truns-[Ru(H2)Cl(dppe)2]A, 2a, and trans-[Ru(H2)Cl(depe)2]A, 2b. The H-H distances in complexes 2 are longer than those found in analogous complexes trans-[Ru(H2)H(diphos)2lf 3 probably because of the x effect of the C1-. Associated with the H-H lengthening is a dramatic reduction in the pKa of 2a (6) vs 3a (15). An electron-rich trihydride complex [Ru(H)3(dppf)2]+ (4), dppf = 1,l -bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene, with no H-H bond is found to be, paradoxically, the most acidic (pKa Z 4). Bond dissociation energies calculated for complexes 2a, 3a, and 4 from PKa and electrochemical data also suggest that the amount of the H-H bonding has a major influence on the acidity of the complexes. Complex 2a in CH2C12 under Ar appears to slowly lose HC1 at 233 K; it reacts with CO at 273 K to give HCl and trans-[Ru(CO)H(dppe)z]+ and with H2 in the presence of Na+ to give 3a. Complex 1 crystallizes in the space group P211c with a = 12.427(2) A, b = 15.565(3) A, c = 26.759(5) A, p = 95.94(3) , v 5148.1 A3, and Dc cd = 1.391 g cm-3 for z = 4. Least squares refinement of the model based on 4383 observed reflections (F > 6.0a(F)) converged to a final RF = 5.4%. Complex 2a crystallizes in the space group P21111 with u = 15.315(1) A, b = 17.479(1) A, c = 18.608(1) A, /3 = 101.79(1) , V = 4875.9(7) A3, and Dcdcd = 1.472 g cm-3 for Z = 4. Least squares refinement of the model based on 9208 observed reflections (F > 4.0a(F)) converged to a final RF = 5.1%. There is electron density associated with the H2 ligand trans to the chloride in octahedral 2a. Introduction The nature of the ancillary ligands in a dihydrogen complex can have a dramatic influence on the structure and reactivity of the dihydrogen ligand. We have determined how the structure and acidity of dihydrogen complexes truns-[M(Hz)H(PR2CHz- CH2PR2)2]+ change with a systematic change in cis bidentate phosphine ligands; when the R substituents are changed from p-CF3C6b to p-MeOCa the pKa of the ruthenium dihydrogen complex changes from 9 to 16 while the H-H bond lengthens only slightly.' Other variations in the cis ligands, L, in the complexes [Ru(H2)H(L)4]+, have been made by several research group^^-^^ and the effects of these variations on the spectro- scopic and H atom exchange properties of these complexes have @ Abstract published in Advance ACS Abstracts, November 1, 1994.

After leaving a solution of trans-[Ru(H~)Cl(depe)2]BF4 n acetone-d6 for a 24 h period, by IH NMR it was found that some trans-[Ru(HD)Cl- (depe)z]BF4 had formed. Method 2. Under 1 atm of Ar, RuHCl(depe)z (0.020 g, 0.034 "01)was suspended in diethyl ether (3 mL) and DzO 0.043 mL, 1.7 01). With vigorous stirring, 2 drops (excess) HBF4.EtzO were added resulting in the immediate formation of a white precipitate. After allowing the solid to settle, the supernatant liquid was decanted and the precipitate was washed with diethyl ether (2 x 5 mL). A 'H NMR spectrum of the sample in acetone-& was then obtained and a 'J(H,D) = 25.2 Hz was confirmed by performing an inversion recovery pulse sequence on the sample in order to null out the $-Hz ignal (Figure 3).

Approximately 6 mg of 1 and an equimolar amount of base were dissolved in either CDZClz or THF-d8 at 20 "C. The 'H NMR and NMR spectra were taken within 30 min and again after 24 h. Resonances were integrated with care as described previously.' When the base was PEtPhz, the equilibrium constant was 0.070 0.005 in CDzClZ. Complex 4 (30 mg) and an excess of acid ([HPPh3]BF4, [HPCyz- PhIBF4, [HPEtPhzIBFh or [HPCy3]BFd) were dissolved in 1.5 mL of CDzClZ. The 'H NMR and 31P NMR spectra were taken within 30 min. The 'H NMR pectra of the reaction of either mCyzPhIBF4 or [HPEtPhz]BF4 with 1 showed separate peaks for hydride-containing reactants and products: -10.4 (m, 4) and -7.9 ppm (q, zJ(H,P) = 10 Hz, [Ru(H)3(dppf)z]+ 4H+)6). These were integrated to determine the equilibrium constants (0.008 0.004 and 0.34 0.10, respectively). The 31P NMR spectrum of the reaction with [HPCyzPh]+ showed peaks at 65.5 (bs, 4Hf), 49.3 (br s, 4), 37.4 (br s, 4) and 27.3 ppm (br s, average of shifts of HPCyZPh+ and PCyzPh) with intensities consistent with the equilibrium constant. There was very little reaction with [HPCy,]BF,; only 4 and a trace of 4H+ were observed. The reaction with [HPPhJBF4 completely converted 4 to 4Hf.

Crystals of 1 were prepared by slow diffusion of diethyl ether into a solution of 47 mg of complex in 0.35 mL of CHzClZ. This was done without protection from the ar A red block was mounted on a glass fiber. Crystals of 2a were prepared by slow diffusion of diethyl ether into a saturated solution of the complex in CHzClz under 1 atm of Ar. A pale yellow crystal was mounted on a glass fiber. Intensity data were collected on an Enraf-Nonius CAD-4 diffracto- meter for 1 and on a Siemens P4 diffractometer for 2a, using graphite monochromated Mo Ka radiation A = 0.710 73 A). The 0-28 scan technique was applied with variable scan speeds. In each case the intensities of 3 standard reflections measured at constant intervals showed no decay. Data for the compounds were corrected for Lorentz and polarization effects and for absorption.22 For both structures the Ru atom position was solved by the Patterson method and other non- hydrogen atoms were located by successive difference Fourier synthe- ses. Non-hydrogen atoms were refined anisotropically by full-matrix least-squares to minimize Ew(F, - FJZ where w = l/(uz(Fo) - g(F Hydrogen atoms were positioned on geometric grounds (C-H 0.96 A, Vi,, = 0.065(4) A2 for 1 and 0.089(3) Az for 2a).

We have preliminary evidence that the complex can also be prepared by the reaction of AgBF4 with trans- RuCl~(dppe)z n CH& at room temperature. The parent ion for 1 in an NPOE matrix was detected by FAB MS. In an NBA matrix, the ion [RuCl(PF6)(dppe)2]+ was the most intense peak in the FAB MS. This unusual observation of a cationic complex associating with the anion suggests that the PF6- anion is coordinated in the gas phase. 1 was also characterized by a single crystal X-ray diffraction study and by solid-state and solution NMR studies (see below). Structure of [RuCl(dppe)2]PF6 in the Solid State. The crystal structure of 1 consists of distorted trigonal bipyramidal (tbp) cations [RuCl(dppe)z]+ (Figure 4) and discrete octahedral PF6- anions. The bidentate dppe ligands span axial and equa- torial positions and the chloride ligand is equatorial. The axial phosphorus atoms P(2) and P(4) (Pm) are each 2.372(2) A away from the ruthenium, with the P(2)-Ru-P(4) angle being 177.0- (1)". The bite angles of the dppe ligands are 80.1(1) and 79.7- (1)" for P(l)-Ru-P(2) and P(3)-Ru-P(4), respectively. The major distortion from tbp geometry is a change from a trigonal to a Y-shape in the equatorial plane. The two equatorial phosphorus-ruthenium bonds form the top of the "Y" with a P(l)-Ru-P(3) angle of only 95.0(1)". There is definitely a strong electronic preference for such a distortion because the close approach of such large groups seems very unfavorable on the basis of steric repulsion considerations. The srcin of this Y type of distortion has been explained by Rachidi et aLZ5 nd Thom and Hoffmann.26 For a d6 metal, the tbp geometry would give a triplet state since the highest occupied molecular orbitals would be degenerate E type orbitals lying in the equatorial plane. This degeneracy can be lifted if the molecule distorts from a trigonal geometry in the equatorial plane. It has been predicted that strong o-donors such as tertiary phosphines prefer to distort to the two top arms of the Y . Weak ndonors such as chloride prefer the lower leg. This is why the two bulky PPhz groups of P( 1) and P(3) in 1 adopt the unusually small angle of 95.0(1)". The Y is distorted because the chloride in 1 is closer to P(3); P(l)-Ru-Cl= 135.8(1)" and P(3)-Ru-C1= 129.2(1)". This distortion is so great in the complex [Rucl(d~ype)2]PF6'~ that the complex becomes almost square pyramidal with the equatorial planar arrangement of atoms described by a T-shape. The chloride in that complex is moved much more toward (1)". Despite the larger bulk of the cyclohexyl groups relative to the phenyl groups, the two equatorial P atoms in [RuCl- (dcype)z]+ are actually closer together than in the dppe com- plex: P(l)-Ru-P(3) = 93.1(1)". The complex Ir(H)zCl(P'- BuzPh)z has a distorted Y in the equatorial plane with an HIrH angle of 72.7" and unequal ClIrH angles of 131.1 and 156.2".12 HF ab initio calculations suggest that the Y can distort toward the T in this way as long as the two pure a-bonding ligands (H in the iridium case and therefore P in the case of 1) maintain a constant, small angle with the metal. The complexes MCl- (dppe)2, M = Tc,15 Re,27 have equatorial angles and distortions that are comparable to those of 1 while the symmetrical complex Re(HzBEt2)(ra~-tetraphos- ) is undistorted with equal Peq- Re-B angles.28 The Ru-Cl distance of 2.394(3) A in 1 is marginally shorter than that observed in [Ru(Hz)Cl(dppe)z]+ (see below). This distance is within one standard deviation of the Ru-Cl distance (2.41(4) A obtained by averaging over 102 Ru-C1 distances in six-coordinate complexes, where Cl is not trans to hydride.29 It is near the lower quartile of Ru-C1 distances for 7 five-coordinate complexes.29 Therefore if there is Ru-Cl bonding in 1, it is similar to that observed in other complexes. The Ru-Cl bond in 1 is shorter than the Tc-C1 bond in TcC1- (dppe)z (2.432(2) presumably because of the positive charge on Ru(I1) vs Tc(1).
