The molybdenum(III) coordination complexes MoX(3)(PMe(3))(3) (X = Cl, Br, and I) are capable of controlling styrene polymerization under typical atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) conditions, in conjunction with 2-bromoethylbenzene (BEB) as an initiator. The process is accelerated by the presence of Al(OPr(i))(3) as a cocatalyst. Electrochemical(More)
The origin of the reversal of the enantioselectivity in the palladium-catalyzed allylic alkylation of rac-1,3-diphenyl-2-propenyl acetate with dimethyl malonate anion using chiral dihydroxy bis(oxazoline) "BO" ligands derived from (1S,2S)-(+)-2-amino-1-phenyl-1,3-propanediol was investigated. To determine the structural effects of the dihydroxy BO ligand on(More)
"Click" reactions between ethynylferrocene and mono-, bis-, and tris-azido aromatic derivatives yielded mono-, bis-, and tris-1,2,3-ferrocenyltriazoles (1, 2, and 3, respectively) as orange crystals. The X-ray crystal structure of the monoferrocenyltriazole compound 1 was solved with two nearly identical molecules within the asymmetric unit. In both(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Co(C(36)H(44)N(4))]·2C(7)H(5)NO(3), is composed of one half of the complex, arranged about an inversion center, and a complete 2-nitro-benzaldehyde (NBA) mol-ecule. The structure consists of columns that contain inter-leaved mol-ecules of NBA and [Co(II)(OEP)] (OEP is 2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octa-ethyl-porphyrin),(More)
Owing to increasing interest in the use of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) based on imidazolidinium ions as ligands in the design of highly efficient transition-metal-based homogeneous catalysts, the characterizations of the 1-ferrocenylmethyl-3-(2,4,6-trimethylbenzyl)imidazolidin-3-ium iodide salt, [Fe(C(5)H(5))(C(19)H(24)N(2))]I, (I), and the palladium(More)
The oxidation of a rhodium(I) complex containing a ferrocene-based heterodifunctional phosphine N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligand produces a stable, planar chiral rhodium(III) complex with an unexpected C-H activation on ferrocene. The oxidation of rhodium(I) to rhodium(III) may be accomplished by initial oxidation of ferrocene to ferrocenium and(More)
Pyridine and bis(TMS)ketene acetals (TMS = trimethylsilyl) react successively with methylchloroformate and iodine (or peracids) to give, via functionalized dihydropyridines, bicyclic nitrogen-containing lactones which have been characterized by X-ray crystallography.
The title compound, C(17)H(12)N(2)O(3), was synthesized by the reaction of 2-hy-droxy-1-naphthaldehyde with 4-nitro-benzenamine. These condense to form the Schiff base, which crystallizes in the zwitterionic form. In the structure, the keto-amino tautomer has a fairly short intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bond between the 2-naphthalenone and amino groups,(More)
In order to prepare a new unsymmetrical chiral ligand, C9H7CH(CH3)CH2C5H5, with an indenyl moiety connected to a cyclopentadienyl unit by a chiral ethylene bridge, we reacted the optically active tosylate 4, derived from ethyl (S)-(-) lactate, with LiCp. The only product resulting from this reaction was an optically active spirocyclopropane 6 obtained with(More)
