Abstract

Bite angle and electronic effects on the ruthenium-diphosphine catalysed ether bond cleavage of the lignin β-O-4 model compound 2-phenoxy-1-phenethanol were tested. Enhanced conversion of the substrate was observed with increasing σ-donor capacity of the ligands. Kinetic and thermodynamic data suggest oxidative addition of the dehydrogenated model compound to the diphosphine Ru(0) complex to be rate-limiting.
