Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
ca 150° dec.
Sparingly soluble in hydrocarbons (e.g. hexane, cyclohexane, benzene) and acetone.


A H-transfer catalyst. It is used in carbonylation catalysis of the allylic amination of unactivated olefins by nitroarenes, reductive carbonylation of mononitro aromatic compounds to carbamates, and as a catalyst for cycloaddition reactions. It is employed as a precursor for the synthesis of Ru nanoparticles. Catalyst used in the intermolecular [3+2+1] cycloaddition of alpha,beta-unsaturated ketones with silylacetylenes and carbon monoxide, to produce alpha-pyrones. Catalyzes the coupling of silanes with thiols, alcohols and amines with high turnover number (TON) and high turnover frequency (TOF).


Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Solutions undergo decomposition at high temperatures.
