Golden trefoils: Tris(alkyne)gold complex [(coct)(3)Au][SbF(6)] (see picture; 1-SbF(6)) can be synthesized from cyclooctyne (coct) and AuSbF(6) generated in situ. Treatment of AuCl with cyclooctyne led to the bis(alkyne)gold complex [Au(coct)(2)Cl] (2). DFT analysis indicates that the cyclooctyne ligands are net electron donors in 1 but overall electron(More)
N-heterocyclic carbene ligand SIDipp (SIDipp = 1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene) and trimesitylphosphine ligand have been used in the synthesis of gold(I) cyanide, t-butylisocyanide, and cyclooctyne complexes (SIDipp)Au(CN) (3), (Mes(3)P)Au(CN) (4), [(Mes(3)P)(2)Au][Au(CN)(2)] (5), [(SIDipp)Au(CN(t)Bu)][SbF(6)] ([6][SbF(6)]),(More)
The cationic zinc adduct {[HB(3,5-(CF3)2Pz)3]Zn(NCMe)2}ClO4 catalyzes the functionalization of tertiary, secondary, and primary C-H bonds of alkanes via carbene insertion. Ethyl diazoacetate serves as the :CHCO2Et carbene precursor. The counteranion, supporting ligand, and coordinating solvents affect the catalytic activity. An in situ generated(More)
Cationic copper(I) dicarbonyl complexes supported by N-heterocyclic carbene ligands, SIPr and IPr*, have been synthesized. [(SIPr)Cu(CO)(2)][SbF(6)] and [(IPr*)Cu(CO)(2)][SbF(6)] have a trigonal planar, three-coordinate copper atom with an average Cu-CO distance of 1.915 Å and display C-O stretching frequencies higher than that of the free CO (2143 cm(-1)).(More)
The reaction of biphenylene (1) with Et2SiH2 in the presence of [Ni(PPhMe2)4] results in the formation of a mixture of 2-diethylhydrosilylbiphenyl [2(Et2HSi)] and 9,9,-diethyl-9-silafluorene (3). Silafluorene 3 was isolated in 37.5% and 2(Et2HSi) in 36.9% yield. The underlying reaction mechanism was elucidated by DFT calculations.(More)
Ethyl zinc complexes [N{(C3F7)C(Dipp)N}2]ZnEt, [N{(C3F7)C(Cy)N}2]ZnEt, [N{(CF3)C(2,4,6-Br3C6H2)N}2]ZnEt and [N{(C3F7)C(2,6-Cl2C6H3)N}2]ZnEt have been synthesized from the corresponding 1,3,5-triazapentadiene and diethyl zinc. X-ray data show that [N{(C3F7)C(Dipp)N}2]ZnEt has a distorted trigonal planar geometry at the zinc center. The triazapentadienyl(More)
The dimethyl sulfide adduct 2(DMS) is a crystalline storage form of the unstable hydroboration reagent 9-H-9-borafluorene (2); 2(DMS) is available by the addition of DMS to either in situ generated [2](2) or 1,2-(2,2'-biphenylylene)diborane(6) (7).
The zinc adduct {[HB(3,5-(CF3)2Pz)3]Zn}(+), which was generated from [HB(3,5-(CF3)2Pz)3]ZnEt and [Ph3C]{B[3,5-(CF3)2C6H3]4}, catalyzes the activation of C-halogen bonds of chloromethanes via carbene insertion. Ethyl diazoacetate serves as the carbene precursor. The presence of {[HB(3,5-(CF3)2Pz)3]Zn}(+) in the reaction mixture was confirmed by obtaining(More)
