AbstractThe reactions of the hexahydride OsH6(PiPr3)2 (1) with 1.0 equiv of the BPh4−, BF4−, and Br− salts of 1-(2-pyridylmethyl)-3-methylimidazolium, in tetrahydrofuran under reflux, have been studied. In the three cases, mixtures of the abnormal [OsH(η2-H2){κC5,N-[1-(2-pyridylmethyl)-3-methylimidazol-5-ylidene]}(PiPr3)2]A (A = BPh4 (2a), BF4 (2b), Br (2c)) and normal [OsH(η2-H2){κC2,N-[1-(2-pyridylmethyl)-3-methylimidazol-2-ylidene]}(PiPr3)2]A (A = BPh4 (3a), BF4 (3b), Br (3c)) isomers are obtained. The formation rate of the abnormal isomer and the abnormal to normal ratio decrease as the coordinating power of the anion of the used salt increases. Treatment of 2b with either HBF4·OEt2 or LiBF4 gives rise to its isomerization to 3b. The X-ray structure of 2a and T1(min) values of the OsH3 resonances of the cations support the hydride-elongated dihydrogen nature of these compounds. The nonclassical interaction between the hydrogen atoms of the OsH3 unit is more important in the normal isomer than in the abnormal. Treatment of 1 with 2.0 equiv of 1-(2-pyridylmethyl)-3-methylimidazolium bromide yields the bis(normal-NHC) complex [OsH{κC2,N-[1-(2-pyridylmethyl)-3-methylimidazol-2-ylidene]}2(PiPr3)]Br (4), which has been also characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis.
