Lewis Acid Binding and Transfer as a Versatile Experimental Gauge of the Lewis Basicity of Fe(0) , Ru(0) , and Pt(0) Complexes.
A number of zerovalent ruthenium tri- and tetracarbonyl complexes of the form [Ru(CO)5-n Ln] (n=1, 2) with neutral phosphine or N-heterocyclic carbene donor ligands have been treated with the LewisExpand

Reactivity of Tetrahalo- and Difluorodiboranes(4) toward Lewis Basic Platinum(0): Bis(boryl), Borylborato, and Doubly Boryl-Bridged Platinum Complexes.
The reaction of the tetrahalodiboranes(4) B2F4, B2Cl4, and B2Br4 with a Lewis basic platinum(0) complex led to the isolation of the cis-bis(difluoroboryl) complex cis-[(Cy3P)2Pt(BF2)2] (1) and theExpand

Does Lewis basicity correlate with catalytic performance in zerovalent group 8 complexes?
Abstract A set of 18 zerovalent group 8 metal complexes of the form [MLn(CO)5−n] (M=Fe, Ru, Os; L=neutral donor; n=0–2) were screened for their catalytic performance in aldehyde hydrosilylation andExpand
Boranediyl‐ and Diborane(4)‐1,2‐diyl‐Bridged Platinum A‐Frame Complexes
Abstract Diplatinum A‐frame complexes with a bridging (di)boron unit in the apex position were synthesized in a single step by the double oxidative addition of dihalo(di)borane precursors at aExpand
Synthesis and characterisation of boranediyl- and diboranediyl-bridged diplatinum A-frame complexes.
A series of boranediyl-bridged diplatinum A-frame complexes, [Pt2X2(μ-BY)(μ-dmpm)2] (X = Cl, Br, I; Y = aryl, alkyl, amino, halo; dmpm = bis(dimethylphosphino)methane), were synthesised by theExpand
