Constrained geometry complexes—Synthesis and applications
Transition metal complexes bearing linked cyclopentadienyl amido ligands, regularly referred to as constrained geometry complexes (CGCs), have found wide interest both in academia and industry sinceExpand

Jozimine A2: the first dimeric Dioncophyllaceae-type naphthylisoquinoline alkaloid, with three chiral axes and high antiplasmodial activity.
A new dimeric naphthylisoquinoline alkaloid, jozimine A(2) (2), was isolated from the root bark of an Ancistrocladus species from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Its absolute stereostructure wasExpand

Nitrogen fixation and reduction at boron
Boron learns to give back to nitrogen Although diatomic nitrogen is famously inert, a variety of transition metals can bind to it through a process termed backbonding. As the nitrogen weakly sharesExpand

Transition metals as Lewis bases: "Z-type" boron ligands and metal-to-boron dative bonding.
While the vast majority of inorganic chemistry involves electron donation from main-group atoms to metals, an intriguing yet flip-side exists: where Lewis-basic metals donate electron density toExpand

Axially chiral beta,beta'-bisporphyrins: synthesis and configurational stability tuned by the central metals.
In this paper, the synthesis of a new type of intrinsically chiral, directly beta,beta'-linked, octa-meso-aryl-substituted bisporphyrins is described, by using an optimized Suzuki-Miyaura couplingExpand

Main-Group Metallomimetics: Transition Metal-like Photolytic CO Substitution at Boron.
The carbon monoxide adduct of an unhindered and highly reactive CAAC-bound arylborylene, [(CAAC)B(CO)Ar] (CAAC = cyclic (alkyl) (amino)carbene), has been prepared using a transfer reaction from theExpand

Neutral zero-valent s-block complexes with strong multiple bonding.
The metals of the s block of the periodic table are well known to be exceptional electron donors, and the vast majority of their molecular complexes therefore contain these metals in their fullyExpand
