Summary of "Structural Mimics of Acetylene Hydratase: Tungsten Complexes Capable of Intramolecular Nucleophilic Attack on Acetylene."

Bioinspired complexes employing the ligands 6-tert-butylpyridazine-3-thione (SPn) and pyridine-2-thione (SPy) were synthesized and fully characterized to mimic the tungstoenzyme acetylene hydratase (AH). The complexes [W(CO)(C H )(CHCH-SPy)(SPy)] (4) and [W(CO)(C H )(CHCH-SPn)(SPn)] (5) were formed by intramolecular nucleophilic attack of the nitrogen donors of the ligand on the coordinated C H molecule. Labelling experiments using C D with the SPy system revealed the insertion reaction proceeding via a bis-acetylene intermediate. The starting complex [W(CO)(C H )(SPy) ] (6) for these studies was accessed by the new acetylene precursor mixture [W(CO)(C H ) (MeCN) Br ] (n=1 and 2; 7). All complexes represent rare examples in the field of W-C H chemistry with 4 and 5 being the first of their kind. In the ongoing debate on the enzymatic mechanism, the findings support activation of acetylene by the tungsten center.
