We report a unique class of dinitrogen complexes of iron featuring sulfur donors in the ancillary ligand. The ligands utilized are related to the recently studied tris(phosphino)silyl ligands (2-R(2)PC(6)H(4))(3)Si (R = Ph, iPr) but have one or two phosphine arms replaced with thioether donors. Depending on the number of phosphine arms replaced, both(More)
Unusual N-N coupling of aryl azides to yield azoarenes is demonstrated by the Ru(I) metalloradical, [SiP(iPr)(3)]Ru(N(2)) (4) ([SiP(iPr)(3)] = (2-iPr(2)PC(6)H(4))(3)Si(-)). The yield of the azoarene is dependent on the substituent on the aryl azide, and the reaction is catalytic for p-methoxy and p-ethoxy phenyl azides, while no azoarene is observed for(More)
We herein present a series of d(7) trimethylphosphine complexes of group 9 metals that are chelated by the tripodal tetradentate tris(phosphino)silyl ligand [SiP(iPr)(3)]H ([SiP(iPr)(3)] = (2-iPr(2)PC(6)H(4))(3)Si(-)). Both electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) simulations and density functional theory (DFT) calculations indicate largely metalloradical(More)
