The synthesis and characterization of three new iridium complexes bearing a tris(pyrazolyl)methane sulfonate ligand of the type $[Ir(Tpms)(LL^{\prime})_2]$ $(L, L^{\prime} = C_2H_4 1; L = C_2H_4,$ $L^{\prime} = PPh_3 2; L (H)_2,$ $L^{\prime} = PPh_3 3$; Tpms = tris(pyrazolyl)methane sulfonate) have been carried out. Complex 3 catalyzes the hydrogenation of the sterically crowded 3,3-dimethyl-1-butene to 2,2-dimethylbutane under mild conditions. The mechanism of the hydrogenation reaction has been studied using the model complex $[Ir(H)_2(Tpms)-(PH_3)]$ (3a) by computational methods at the B3LYP/LANL2DZ level. Hydrogenation of ethylene to ethane by the model complex is exothermic by -27.1 kcal/mol.
