Reduction of an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) adduct of SnCl(2), viz. [(IPr)SnCl(2)] (IPr = :C{N(Dip)C(H)}(2); Dip = 2,6-diisopropylphenyl), with a magnesium(I) dimer, has afforded the first NHC complex of a row 5 element in its diatomic form, [(IPr)Sn=Sn(IPr)]; a computational analysis of the complex indicates that it comprises a singlet state, doubly(More)
Reactions of the expanded ring N-heterocyclic carbene, 6-Dip (:C{N(Dip)CH2}2CH2, Dip = 2,6-diisopropylphenyl), with group 15 element trichlorides have yielded the monomeric complexes, [(6-Dip)ECl3] (E = P, As or Sb), two examples of which (E = P and Sb) have been crystallographically characterised. Reduction of [(6-Dip)PCl3] with KC8 yielded the unusual(More)
Reactions of [Pt(PCy(3))(2)] (Cy = cyclohexyl) with group 12 metal dihalides have afforded the novel metal only Lewis pair (MOLP) complexes, [(Cy(3)P)(2)Pt→MX(2)] (M = Zn or Cd, X = Br or I), or the oxidative addition product, trans-[(Cy(3)P)(2)(I)PtHgI]. The zinc complex represents the first MOLP to contain an unsupported Pt→Zn linkage.
