Sulfur-bridged binuclear structures [2M-2S] play a pivotal role in a variety of chemical processes such as bond breaking and formation and electron transfer. In general, structural persistence is deemed essential to the respective function but owing to the lack of a suitable molecular model system, the current understanding of the factors that control the(More)
Stanna-closo-dodecaborate [SnB11H11]2- reacts as a nucleophile with various silver electrophiles ([Ag(PMe3)]+, [Ag(PEt3)]+, [Ag(PPh3)]+, and Ag+) to form silver-tin bonds. Aggregation of two, three, or four units of [{Ag(SnB11H11)(PR3)}n]n- (PPh3, n = 2; PEt3, n = 3; PMe3, n = 4) was found, depending on the size of the coordinating phosphine. The structures(More)
Transition-metal complexes of radical ligands can exhibit low-energy electronic transitions in the near-infrared (NIR) spectral region. NIR band energy and intensity sensitively depend on the degree of electronic coupling of the chromophore. Using the example of open-shell complexes derived from platinum and a 1,4-terphenyldithiophenol, we present a novel(More)
Alkyltin trihydride [(Me3 Si)2 CHSnH3 ] was synthesized and the reductive elimination of hydrogen from this species was investigated. A methyl-substituted N-heterocyclic carbene reacts with the organotrihydride in dependence on stoichiometry and solvent to give a series of products of the reductive elimination and dehydrogenative tin-tin bond formation.(More)
This work reports on the redox and acid-base properties of binuclear complexes of nickel from 1,4-terphenyldithiophenol ligands. The results provide insight into the cooperative electronic interaction between a dinickel core and its ligand. Donor/acceptor contributions flexibly adjust to stabilize different redox states at the metals, which is relevant for(More)
Although hydrides of the group 14 elements are well-known as versatile starting materials in many chemical transformations, a hydride of lead in oxidation state II is so far unknown. In this work, we finally complete the jigsaw puzzle by reporting the isolation of the first low valent organolead hydride. The thermolabile dimeric organolead hydride was(More)
We herein report the synthesis and characterization of a terphenyl-substituted Sn(II) allyl compound featuring an η(3)  coordination mode in solution and in the solid state. Two examples for the interesting reactivity of the allyl Sn(II) molecule are presented: Reactions with terminal alkynes result in the formation of tricyclic compounds by CC bond(More)
A bulky substituted stannane Ar*SnH3 (Ar*=2,6-(2',4',6'-triisopropylphenyl)phenyl) was treated with the well-known frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) PtBu3 /B(C6 F5 )3 in varying stoichiometries. To some degree, hydride abstraction and adduct formation is observed, leading to [Ar*SnH2 (PtBu3 )]+ which is rather unreactive toward further dehydrogenation. In a(More)
A series of benzyl(diphenylphosphino) and o-phenyl(diphenlyphosphino) substituted germylenes and plumbylenes were synthesized by nucleophilic substitution between the respective lithium reagent and tetrylene halide. The Lewis pairs were characterized by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. The reactivity of the tetrylenes was investigated with(More)
Intramolecular germylene, stannylene, and plumbylene Lewis pairs were reacted with hexanal and yielded the cyclic addition products only with the germanium and tin reagents. In further reactivity studies, the hydroboration of aldehydes and ketones catalyzed by intramolecular germylene, stannylene, and plumbylene Lewis pairs was studied. In the case of the(More)
