Abstract:Black Pt effected the hydrogenation of Ru(COD)(η 3 -C 3 H 5 ) 2 (1; COD is 1,5-cyclooctadiene) by dihydrogen gas (pressure ∼1 atm) at -10°C in hexanes. The hydrogenation resulted in adsorption of Ru adatoms by the surface of Pt with concomitant formation of propane, cyclooctane, and small amounts of cis-bicyclo[3.3.0]octane and n-octane. Compound 1 did not react with dihydrogen gas under these conditions in the absence of Pt. The total amount of cyclooctane, bicyclo[3.3.0]octane, and n-octane in solution was e… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
