Well-resolved resonances are observed in the 31P-CPMAS NMR spectra of (2S,4S)-2,4-bis(diphenylphosphino)pentane or (S,S)-BDPP (1) and its cationic complexes [(Rh{(S,S)-BDPP}(NBD)]BF4 (2a), [Rh{(S,S)-BDPP}(NBD)]PF6 (2b), [Rh{(S,S)-BDPP}(NBD)]ClO4 (2c) and [Rh{(S,S)-BDPP}(COD)]BF4 (3). Packing forces split the single resonance observed for these systems in solution. The spectral parameters depend remarkably on the counterion in 2a, 2b, and 2c. Complex 3 showed a splitting of every resonance due to the presence of two independent molecules in the unit cell. The complex [Rh{(S, S)-BDPP}(NBD)Cl] (4) showed two broad 31P resonances which are ascribed to a number of closely related structures based on the expected trigonal bipyramidal geometry.
