Research

The group of Bas de Bruin aims at understanding and developing (new) homogeneous catalytic reactions. Catalytic topics include late transition metal catalyzed olefin (ep)oxidation, hydrogenation, cyclopropanation and other carbene transfer reactions, aziridination and carbene polymerisation reactions. The group increasingly focuses at the development of new catalyst based on abundant first-row transition metals. Detailed insights are gathered through a combination of synthetic modelling, DFT calculations, EPR and NMR spectroscopy, applied catalysis and kinetic investigations.  Experimental results are combined with DFT calculations, not only to obtain deeper insights in the intimate mechanisms but also to search for new transition-state analogies among reactions. Such TS analogies are used to disclose new possibilities for novel catalytic reactions, which are further explored in target-oriented test reactions. The use of unconventional ligands (e.g. redox active and cooperative ligands) and metals in unconventional oxidation states is further expected to create new reactivity and more diversity in the ‘organometallic playground’ of catalysis. The group currently focuses on the following research topics:

 

-                  Oxidation Reactions

-                  Reactive, ‘Redox Non-Innocent’ & Cooperative Ligands in Catalysis

-                  Reactivity of Organometallic Radicals

-                  Cobalt-catalysed (de)Hydrogenation Reactions

-                  Catalytic Carbene Insertion Reactions


Oxidation Reactions

Synthetic modelling to gain a better understanding of catalysis has been, and still is, an actively pursued research theme by Bas de Bruin and his research team. Especially in the field of Rh mediated olefin oxygenation synthetic models have provided new mechanistic insight.

The investigations aim at gaining improved understanding of rhodium- and iridium mediated olefin oxygenation with O2 and H2O2 (very different from Pd based Wacker oxidation in many aspects) through structural and spectroscopic characterization of species that had previously only been postulated as intermediates. Examples of such uncovered intermediates include 2‑metallaoxetanes, metalladioxolanes, peroxo-olefin complexes, and many more. Screening of the reactivity of the thus obtained ‘candidate intermediates’, revealed a rich chemistry. This project is sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Reactive, ‘Redox Non-Innocent’ & Cooperative Ligands in Catalysis

In this project we aim at developing new catalytic approaches for challenging (new) reactions in homogeneous transition metal catalysis research. These investigations involve the use of redox non‑innocent and cooperative ligands to achieve challenging catalytic transformations. The cooperative ligand is not just a spectator ligand, but actively participates in bond making and bond breaking processes in converting substrates to products. This topic is pursued in close collaboration with the groups of Grützmacher (ETH), Zhang (U South Florida) and Tejel/Ciriano (Zaragoza). The project is sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the European Research Council (ERC).

Reactivity of Organometallic Radicals

In the field of paramagnetic organometallic chemistry the group is currently working at the front-line of the competitive and internationally emerging new research field of metallo-radicals. Radical-type reactivity of open-shell organometallic complexes is a largely uncharted research area. Increasing reports on their involvement in catalysis stimulated a world-wide interest in their properties. We reported the first example of an iridium(II)-ethene species, and since then our group reported on a variety of paramagnetic M0(olefin) and MII(olefin) species (M = Rh, Ir, Co). Current efforts focus on the catalytic activity of planar metallo-radical cobalt(II) complexes (a.o. cobalt(II)-porphrins).

EPR spectroscopy, in combination with DFT calculations, is used as a powerful technique to obtain detailed information about the electronic structure and reactivity of these species. Fascinating is that alkene and carbene ligands can bear almost the entire spin-population of the paramagnetic complex, which thus behave as “redox non-innocent” ligands. Such donor-induced shifting of spin-density from the metal to the ligand constitutes a fundamentally new approach to tune the reactivity of open-shell metal-olefin complexes, and plays a crucial role in the mechanism of cobalt-catalyzed olefin cyclopropanation reactions. This topic is pursued in close collaboration with the groups of Grützmacher (ETH), Zhang (U South Florida), Tejel/Ciriano (Zaragoza), Chan (Hong Kong), Wolf (Regensburg) and Schneider (Göttingen). The project is co-sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the European Research Council (ERC).

 


 

 

 

Cobalt-Catalysed Hydrogenation Reactions

As part of our efforts to replace expensive noble metals by cheaper, earth-abundant ones, we recently started a project to replace rhodium- by cobalt-catalysts for applications in hydrogenation reactions. These catalyst were recently shown to be effective in catalytic hydrogenation of esters and carboxylic acids (Science 2015), which is a major advancement compared to stoichiometric use of aluminiumhydrides. We are currently studying their activity in several other (de)hydrogenation processes of interest to chemical industries and for energy-conversion applications. This project is persued in cloe collaboration with the group of Elsevier (UvA).

 

 

 

Catalytic Carbene Insertion Reactions

Metallo-carbenes are well-known as important intermediates in olefin cyclopropanation and olefin metathesis reactions, but more recently it has become clear that their chemistry is far richer. We recently demonstrated that metallo-carbenes can be used in transition metal insertion polymerization to arrive at completely new types of stereoregular carbon-chain polymers Notably these new polymers contain a polar functional side group at each carbon of the polymer backbone. This new family of poly(substituted methylene) polymers has a tremendous potential for the development of new materials, which are easily modified to tune the material properties, for various possible applications.

We are now further investigating the mechanism and scope of this remarkable new polymerisation reaction. We will use this new concept to prepare new polymeric materials based on homo- and co-polymerisation of (functionalized) carbenes, and we are investigating co-polymerisation of carbenes with other reactive monomers. The obtained syndiotactic (co)polymers are crystalline, and reveal interesting thermotropic and lyotropic liquid crystalline properties. This project is co-sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) and the European Research Council (ERC).

In addition we are also trying to uncover new reactions in which carbene (migratory) insertion reactions play a central role. DFT calculations suggest that the transition state (TS) of the new carbene polymerisation reaction is very similar to the TS’s of a variety of carbonyl insertion reactions. Based on this analogy, we will investigate several new carbene insertion reactions, potentially leading to new and useful polymeric materials and new synthetic routes to prepare small functional organic molecules. Traditional ligand screening & modification methods and new combinatorial and supramolecular approaches (encapsulation) will be explored to arrive at new and improved catalyst. DFT calculations will assist in gaining deeper mechanistic insights required for the optimization of such new catalytic reactions.

 

 

Short CV

Bas de Bruin studied chemistry at the University of Nijmegen from 1989-1994. He obtained his Ph. D. (April 20, 1999) from the same university (Rh Mediated Olefin Oxygenation). He did his postdoc in the group of Wieghardt at the Max-Planck Institut für Bioanorganische Chemie (Mülheim a/d Ruhr, Germany, April 1999-April 2000) for which he obtained an Alexander-von-Humboldt fellowship in 1999. After his postdoc he returned to the University of Nijmegen as an assistant professor in Inorganic Chemistry (Metal-Organic Chemistry), where he was involved in several research activities ranging from olefin oxygenation, radical organometallic chemistry, EPR spectroscopy, catalysis, light-switchable redox bistable molecules, DFT calculations, and (catalytic) synthesis of new materials. September 2005, Bas de Bruin obtained an NWO-VIDI grant to uncover new catalytic reactions. November 2005 he moved to the University of Amsterdam (UvA, group Reek, Homogeneous and Supramolecular Catalysis), where he was promoted to Associate Professor (UHD, October 2008). January 2013 he was promoted to Full Professor (chair) at the same university. January 2016 he was elected as ‘UvA teacher of the year 2015’, in a university-broad competition organized by the students of the University of Amsterdam.

Bas de Bruin presently focuses at the development of new tools in homogeneous catalysis, using metals in unconventional oxidation states and unconventional ligands, specifically aiming at the development of new catalytic reactions. In 2008 he obtained a prestigious ERC Starting Grant (first round of the EU 7th framework Ideas Program; ERC = European Research Council). In 2012 he obtained a prestigious NWO-VICI grant to investigate new controlled (catalytic) radical-type transformations. Bas de Bruin is involved in teaching Inorganic Chemistry, Thermodynamics, Organometallic Chemistry, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Homogeneous Catalysis and (Catalytic) Reaction Mechanisms.
