The ditopic germanium complex FGe(NIPr)2 Ge[BF4 ] (3[BF4 ]; IPr=1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene) is prepared by the reaction of the amino(imino)germylene (Me3 Si)2 NGeNIPr (1) with BF3 ⋅OEt2 . This monocation is converted into the germylene-germyliumylidene 3[BAr(F) 4 ] [Ar(F) =3,5-(CF3 )2 -C6 H3 ] by treatment with Na[BAr(F) 4 ]. The(More)
The imidazolin-2-imino group is an N-heterocyclic imino functionality that derives from the class of compounds known as guanidines. The exocyclic nitrogen atom preferably bonds to electrophiles and its electron-donating character is markedly enhanced by efficient delocalization of cationic charge density into the five-membered imidazoline ring. Thus, this(More)
The novel amino(imino)germylene 1 was prepared by the conversion of HNIPr (NIPr = bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-imino) with 1 equiv. of Ge[N(SiMe3)2]2. Germylene 1 reacts with B(C6F5)3 to afford the borate salt 2(+)[MeB(C6F5)3](-) in a methyl-abstraction and ring-closing reaction. The conversion of 2 with Fe2(CO)9 furnishes the germylene iron(More)
The novel amino(imino)stannylene 1 was prepared by conversion of HNIPr (NIPr = bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-imino) with one equivalent of Lappert's tin reagent (Sn[N(SiMe3)2]2). Treatment of 1 with DMAP (4-dimethylaminopyridine) yields its Lewis acid-base adduct 2. The reaction of 1 with one equivalent of trimethylsilyl azide results in(More)
The lithium bis(imino)stannylenoid (NIPr)2 Sn(Li)Cl (1; NIPr=bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-imino) was prepared by the reaction of LiNIPr with 0.5 equiv of SnCl2 ⋅diox (diox=1,4-dioxane) and the ambiphilic character of the compound was demonstrated by investigations into its reactivity. Treatment of 1 with I2 or MeI yielded the oxidative addition(More)
The reaction of bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-imine (LH, 1) with Me3N·AlH3 furnishes {μ-LAlH2}2 (2). The marked tendency of 2 to release its hydride substituents is ascribed to the strong electron-donor character of the imidazolin-2-iminato ligand. This is supported by its reactivity study and DFT calculations. In fact, compound 2 was further(More)
Conversions of iminoboranes with an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) result in borane dihydride formation (BDF) concomitant with dihydrogenated NHC. The iminoborane dihydrides are prone to a hydride-mediated ring-expansion reaction (RER) at elevated temperature, that is, the insertion of the boron atom into the adjacent CN bond of the NHC to yield boracycles.(More)
Single crystals of the meta- and para-phenylene-bridged ditopic trihydridoborates (Li(THF)(2))(2)[m-C(6)H(4)(BH(3))(2)] and (Li(THF)(2))(2)[p-C(6)H(4)(BH(3))(2)] have been prepared and investigated by X-ray crystallography. The compounds turned out to be coordination polymers in which each trihydridoborate substituent is connected with one trihydridoborate(More)
Mol-ecules of the title compound, [Zn(8)(C(6)F(5))(8)O(4)(C(4)H(10)O)(4)], are located on a special position of site symmetry [Formula: see text]. As a result, there is just one quarter-mol-ecule in the asymmetric unit. The title compound features a Zn(4)O(4) cube. Each Zn atom in the cube carries a pentafluorophenyl substituent. Each O atom is bonded to a(More)
