A pseudo-dearomatized PN3P*Rh−CO complex reacts with various alkyl/benzyl halides to furnish a series of second-generation PN3P-pincer carbonyl complexes via the ligand post-modification strategy. These synthesized complexes were fully characterized by NMR, FTIR, HRMS, and single-crystal X-ray crystallography. A plausible mechanism for the formation of 2nd-generation PN3P complexes was proposed based on the isolation of the minor dialkylated products.
