Unusual C-H bond activation-aldol condensation of aromatic aldehydes with the methyl group of a carbene-like triosmium cluster

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Reactions of the triosmium cluster [HOs3(CO)(10)(eta(1):eta(1)-OC4H2CCH3)] with a series of aromatic aldehydes under mild conditions result in condensation of the ligand methyl group with the aldehyde C=O moiety to give typical aldol condensation products.
