Efforts to replace noble-metal catalysts by low-cost alternatives are of constant interest. The organometallic, non-aqueous wet-chemical synthesis of various hitherto unknown nanocrystalline Ni/Ga intermetallic materials and the use of NiGa for the selective semihydrogenation of alkynes to alkenes are reported. Thermal co-hydrogenolysis of the(More)
The N-heterocyclic carbene-phosphinidene adduct IPrPSiMe3 is introduced as a synthon for the preparation of terminal carbene-phosphinidyne transition metal complexes of the type [(IPrP)MLn ] (MLn =(η(6) -p-cymene)RuCl) and (η(5) -C5 Me5 )RhCl). Their spectroscopic and structural characteristics, namely low-field (31) P NMR chemical shifts and short(More)
Activation of white phosphorus with Ga(DDP) (DDP = 2-diiso-propylphenylamino-4-diiso-propylphenylimino-2-pentene) afforded [(DDP)Ga(P(4))] (1) by insertion of the Ga(I) center at one of the six P-P bonded edges of the P(4) tetrahedron. Further reaction of 1 with three equivalents of Mo(CO)(6) results in the formation of(More)
Much π and no σ: quantum chemical calculations showed that the Ge atoms of the Ga(2)Ge(2) core in Ge(2)[Ga(DPP)](2) are not bonded by σ interactions, but rather by a transannular π interaction. The compound is formed by reduction of (PCy(3))⋅GeCl(2) with Ga(DDP)/KC(8) which also yielded a further product Ge(4)[Ga(DPP)](2) with a Ge(4) tetrahedron(More)
Coinage metal complexes of the N-heterocyclic carbene-phosphinidene adduct IPr⋅PPh (IPr=1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene) were prepared by its reaction with CuCl, AgCl, and [(Me2 S)AuCl], which afforded the monometallic complexes [(IPr⋅PPh)MCl] (M=Cu, Ag, Au). The reaction with two equivalents of the metal halides gave bimetallic(More)
