The 17e(-) monoradical [Mn(CO)5 ] is widely recognized as an unstable organometallic transient and is known to dimerize rapidly with the formation of a MnMn single bond. As a result of this instability, isolable analogues of [Mn(CO)5 ] have remained elusive. Herein, we show that two sterically encumbering isocyanide ligands can destabilize the MnMn bond(More)
To circumvent complications with redox-active ligands commonly encountered in the study of manganese electrocatalysts for CO2 reduction, we have studied the electrochemistry of the manganese mixed carbonyl/isocyanide complexes XMn(CO)3(CNArDipp2)2 (X = counteranion), to evaluate the pairing effects of the counteranion and their influence over the potential(More)
The preparation of 3D and 2D Cu(I) coordination networks using ditopic m-terphenyl isocyanides is described. The incorporation of sterically encumbering substituents enables the controlled, solid-state preparation of Cu(I) tris-isocyanide nodes with a labile solvent ligand in a manner mirroring solution-phase chemistry of monomeric complexes. The protection(More)
Using the stable metalloradical Mn(CO)3(CNArDipp2)2, we report the formation of manganese-main group complexes via the single-electron functionalization of main group halides. The reactions occur in a simple 1 : 1 stoichiometry, and demonstrate the utility of using stable open-shelled organometallics as precursors for metal-main group compounds. This has(More)
