Olefin dimerizations are typically proposed to proceed via a Cossee−Arlman type migratory mechanism involving relatively electron-rich metal hydrides. We provide experimental evidence and theoretical calculations that show, in contrast, relatively electron-poor O-donor Ir complexes can catalyze the dimerization of olefins via a mechanism that involves olefin CH bond activation and insertion into a metal−vinyl intermediate.
