Thermolysis of the P-coordinated KITPHOS monophosphine complex [(p-cymene)RuCl2(KITPHOS)] in chlorobenzene at 120 ºC resulted in displacement of the p-cymene to afford [{k(P)-h6-KITPHOS}RuCl2], the first example of a constrained geometry complex in which the k(P)-bonded phosphino group and the h6-coordinated proximal phenyl ring are connected by an unsaturated two-carbon tether; both complexes form efficient catalysts for the direct ortho arylation of 2-phenylpyridine and N-phenylpyrazole with a range of aryl chlorides.
