The unique C−C bond formation reaction between diisopropylamine and CH2Cl2 proceeding on a bis(oxazolinyl)phenyl rhodium complex (tBu-Phebox-dm)RhCl2(H2O) (1) was discovered. The intermediary chloromethyl complex, (tBu-Phebox-dm)Rh(CH2Cl)Cl(NEt3), which was obtained by reaction of 1 with CH2Cl2 in the presence of amine, underwent C−C bond formation with imine to give an azarhodacyclopentene complex, 2.
