  • Description: Previously it was demonstrated that maleoylcobalt and phthaloylcobalt complexes react with alkynes and produce substituted quinones after oxidative decomplexation. Herein is reported a study of the deprotonation of 3,4- dimethylmaleoylcobalt complexes leading to a reactive dienolate that on treatment with electrophiles provides new cobalt complexes functionalized at either the γ- or α-position of the dienolate. The γ/α ratio depends significantly on the steric demand of the maleoylcobalt complex auxiliary ligands with high γ-alkylation selectivity provided by 3,4-dimethylmaleoyl(pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)(SbPh 3 ). These γ-alkylated products react with alkynes to give a variety of pentamethylcyclopentadienylcobalt (substituted η 4 -benzoquinone) complexes that produce substituted benzoquinones on oxidative decomplexation.
