Abstract [en]

The hydride iridium pincer complex [(PCyP)IrH2] (PCyP=cis-1,3-bis[(di-tert-butylphosphino)methyl]cyclohexane, 1) reveals remarkably solvent-dependent hydride chemical shifts, isotope chemical shifts, J(HD) and T-1(min), with r(HH) increasing upon moving to more polar medium. The only known example of such behaviour (complex [(POCOP)IrH2], POCOP=2,6-(tBu(2)PO)(2)C6H3) was explained by the coordination of a polar solvent molecule to the iridium (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2006, 128, 17114). Based on the existence of an agostic bond between -C-H and iridium in 1 in all solvents, we argue that the coordination of solvent can be rejected. DFT calculations revealed that the structures of 1 and [(POCOP)IrH2] depend on the dielectric permittivity of the medium and these compounds adopt trigonal-bipyramidal geometries in non-polar media and square-pyramidal geometries in polar media.
