Decamethyldizincocene, a Stable Compound of Zn(I) with a Zn-Zn Bond
Unlike mercury, which has an extensive +1 oxidation state chemistry, zinc usually adopts the +2 oxidation state. Decamethyldizincocene, Zn2(η5-C5Me5)2, an organometallic compound of Zn(I) formallyExpand
Synthesis and insertion reactions of the cyclometalated palladium-alkyl complexes Pd(CH(2)CMe(2)-o-C(6)H(4))L(2). Observation of a pentacoordinated intermediate in the insertion of SO(2).
Palladacycles of the type 2, have been synthesized by treatment of the corresponding chloroalkylcomplexes Pd(CH(2)CMe(2)C(6)H(5))ClL(2) (L(2) = (PMe(3))(2), 2a, or 1,5-cyclooctadiene (cod), 2b) withExpand
Synthesis and reactivity studies on alkyl-aryloxo complexes of nickel containing chelating diphosphines: cyclometallation and carbonylation reactions
Nickel alkyl–aryloxo complexes of composition Ni(R)(OC6H32,6-Me2)(PP) (R= CH2SiMe3 ,C H 3 ,C H 2CMe2Ph; PPPPr2 (CH2)nPPr2 , n=2 (dippe) or 3 (dippp)) have been synthesized. While theExpand
Zinc-zinc bonded zincocene structures. Synthesis and characterization of Zn2(eta5-C5Me5)2 and Zn2(eta5-C5Me4Et)2.
While, in general, decamethylzincocene, Zn(C5Me5)2, and other zincocenes, Zn(C5Me4R)2 (R = H, But, SiMe3), react with dialkyl and diaryl derivatives, ZnR'2, to give the half-sandwich compoundsExpand
C-H bond activation reactions of ethers that generate iridium carbenes.
Two important objectives in organometallic chemistry are to understand C-H bond activation reactions mediated by transition metal compounds and then to develop efficient ways of functionalizing theExpand
