The B-S bond in N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-boryl sulfides can be cleaved homolytically to NHC-boryl or NHC-thioboryl and thiyl radicals using light, either directly around 300 nm or with a sensitizer at a longer wavelength (>340 nm). In contrast, the electrochemical reductive cleavage of the B-S bond is difficult. This easy photolytic cleavage makes the(More)
A small library of triazolylidene-boranes that differ only in the nature of the aryl group on the external nitrogen atom was prepared. Their reactivity as hydrogen-atom donors, as well as that of the corresponding N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-boryl radicals toward methyl acrylate and oxygen, was investigated by laser flash photolysis, molecular orbital(More)
Reactions of 1,3-dimethylimidazol-2-ylidene-borane (diMe-Imd-BH3) and related NHC-boranes with diaryl and diheteroaryl disulfides provide diverse NHC-boryl monosulfides (diMe-Imd-BH2SAr) and NHC-boryl disulfides (diMe-Imd-BH(SAr)2). Heating in the dark with 1 equiv of disulfide favors monosulfide formation, while irradiation with 2 equiv disulfide favors(More)
