Abstract: The di-tert-butylphosphido-boratabenzene ligand (DTBB) reacts with [(C2H4)2RhCl]2 yielding the dimeric species [(C2H4)Rh(DTBB)]2 (1). This species was fully characterized by multinuclear NMR and X-ray crystallography. Complex 1 readily dissociates ethylene in solution and upon exposure to 1 atm of H2 is capable of carrying out the hydrogenation of ethylene. The characterization of two Rh–H species by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy is provided. The reactivity of 1 towards the catalytic hydrogenation of alkenes and alkynes at room temperature and 1 atm of H2 is reported and compared to the activity of Wilkinson’s catalyst under the same reaction conditions.
