Ortho-CH activation of aromatic ketones, partially fluorinated aromatic ketones, and aromatic imines was investigated using a trihydride-stannyl-osmium(IV) complex. The reaction pathway for the formation of intermediate was evaluated by density functional theory (DFT). The results indicate that the formed products are classical dihydrides and that there is no interactions between the tin atom and any of the hydride ligands.
