Abstract
A series of fourteen O-ethyl-N-butylphenylphosphonamidates with benzyl ether substituents at the ortho position was prepared and fully characterised. Upon treatment with n-butyllithium in THF at RT, they underwent cyclisation in eight cases to give the novel 2,3-dihydrobenzo[d][1,3]oxaphospholes [...] Read more.
A series of fourteen O-ethyl-N-butylphenylphosphonamidates with benzyl ether substituents at the ortho position was prepared and fully characterised. Upon treatment with n-butyllithium in THF at RT, they underwent cyclisation in eight cases to give the novel 2,3-dihydrobenzo[d][1,3]oxaphospholes in moderate to low yield as a single diastereomer, for which the relative configuration was determined by X-ray diffraction in one case.

Abstract
The chloro-P,N-{diphenylphosphanyl-[(5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-ylamino)phenyl-me- thyl]}(p-cymene)ruthenium(II) hexafluorophosphate complex (4) was obtained in two steps from diphenylphosphanyl-[(5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-ylamino)phenyl-methyl] borane (2). In the first step, the oxadiazole ring coordinated with the ruthenium atom, resulting in the formation of the [...] Read more.
The chloro-P,N-{diphenylphosphanyl-[(5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-ylamino)phenyl-me- thyl]}(p-cymene)ruthenium(II) hexafluorophosphate complex (4) was obtained in two steps from diphenylphosphanyl-[(5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-ylamino)phenyl-methyl] borane (2). In the first step, the oxadiazole ring coordinated with the ruthenium atom, resulting in the formation of the dichloro-N-{diphenylphosphanyl-[(5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-ylamino)phenyl-methyl]borane}(p-cymene) ruthenium(II) complex (3). During the crystallization of the P,N-chelate ruthenium complex, the formation of conglomerate crystals was revealed by X-ray structure analysis. Only two stereoisomers were obtained with (S)-Ru and (R)-C configurations in the first complex and with (R)-Ru and (S)-C configurations in the second. This deracemization during crystallization is due to the formation of a hydrogen bond between the P,N-ligand and the chlorine atom (CH•••Cl). This supramolecular interaction allows the transfer of the ligand chirality to the metal center and decrees the stereochemistry of the ruthenium atom. Full article
