The synthesis, structure, and reactivity properties of three iridium square planar complexes bearing the anionic phosphine ligand diphenylphosphidoboratabenzene (DPB) are described. Reactivity studies show a rate enhancement for the oxidative addition of a substituted benzyl bromide and Me₃SnBr with DPB as a ligand in place of triphenylphosphine. Two products from the oxidative addition of p-chlorobenzyl bromide have been isolated and structurally characterized.
