Synthesis and Characteristics of Iridium ComplexesBearing N‑Heterocyclic Nitrenium Cationic Ligands
N-Heterocyclic nitrenium cations are isostructural and isoelectronic analogues of the ubiquitous N-heterocyclic carbene. We present the first examples of coordination of nitrenium ions to the Ir(I)Expand

Frustrated Lewis Pairs Comprising Nitrogen Lewis Acids for Si-H Bond Activation.
N-heterocyclic nitrogen Lewis acids are a recent addition to the field of organic chemistry. Based on nitrenium cations, these acids where previously shown to generate Lewis adducts when combinedExpand
