Hip to be square: Direct carbonylation of solutions of the heptaphosphide trianion (P7(3-)) afforded the phosphaethynolate anion in moderate yields. This species undergoes [2+2] cycloaddition reactions with diphenylketene and bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)carbodiimide to yield the anionic four-membered heterocycles P[C(O)]2C(C6H5)2(-) and PC(O)(CNDipp)NDipp(-) .
Reactions of the 2-phosphaethynolate anion (PCO(-), 1) with ammonium salts quantitatively yielded phosphinecarboxamide (PH2C(O)NH2, 2). The molecular structure and chemical properties of 2 were studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and multielement NMR spectroscopy. This phosphorus-containing analogue of urea is a rare example of an air-stable primary… (More)
We describe the coordination chemistry of the primary phosphine PH2C(O)NH2 (phosphinecarboxamide) towards group 6 transition-metals. Experimental and theoretical studies reveal that this novel species has comparable electronic properties to PH3.
Lanthanide complexes of tetrapicolyl cyclen displayed remarkably high affinities for fluoride (log K≈5) in water, and were shown to form 1:1 complexes. The behaviour of these systems can be rationalised by changes to the magnitude of the crystal-field parameter, B20 . However, such changes are not invariably accompanied by a change in sign of this… (More)
We demonstrate that the synthesis of new N-functionalized phosphinecarboxamides is possible by reaction of primary and secondary amines with PCO(-) in the presence of a proton source. These reactions proceed with varying degrees of success, and although primary amines generally afford the corresponding phosphinecarboxamides in good yields, secondary amines… (More)
