A series of N-(5,6,7-trihydroquinolin-8-ylidene)arylamine ligands was synthesized and fully characterized by NMR, IR spectroscopy and elemental analysis. Dimeric N-(5,6,7-trihydroquinolin-8-ylidene)arylaminonickel dichlorides were prepared and examined by IR spectroscopy and elemental analysis, and the molecular structures of the representative nickel(More)
A convenient way to a new class of geminal Mes2PH(+)/B(C6F5)2H(-) pairs is presented. It utilizes triflic acid addition to trans-Mes2PCH=CHB(C6F5)2 followed by triflate/hydride exchange. Thermally induced ring-closure gave a phosphonium/boratacyclopropane zwitterion 8 which formed the Mes2PH(CHMe)B(C6F5)2H P/B FLP-H2 product 10 by subsequent treatment with(More)
Ethylene polymerization was performed using a series of 2-[1-(2,6-dibenzhydrylphenylimino)ethyl]-6-[1-(arylimino)ethyl]pyridyliron(II) chlorides with the activity in the range of 10(7) g PE mol(-1) (Fe) h(-1), which is the highest observed in iron procatalysts at elevated reaction temperatures such as 80 °C in the presence of MMAO and 60 °C in the presence(More)
Diphenylphosphanylethyne (3a) reacts with tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane at room temperature by a typical frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) reaction. It undergoes a sequential series of 1,2-phosphane/borane additions to the alkyne unit in an overall 2:2 molar ratio to selectively form the dimeric product 5a. Product 5 features a pentafulvene-reminiscent structure(More)
The bifunctional frustrated BH(-)/B hydridoborate nucleophile/borane Lewis acid pair 6 is prepared starting from the borata-diene 3 by a sequence of sequential protonation/hydride attachment, followed by hydroboration with Piers' borane [HB(C6F5)2]. The trans-1,2-bifunctional system 6 reduced carbon monoxide eventually to the aldehyde product 10.
The 2-(N-alkylcarboxamide)-6-iminopyridine ligands (L1-L7) can bind as either mono-anionic tridentate N^N^N ligands on reaction with PdCl(2)(CH(3)CN)(2), to form complexes LPdCl (C1-C7), or as neutral tridentate N^N^O ligands with NiCl(2)·6H(2)O, to produce complexes LNiCl(2) (C8-C14). All metal complexes were characterized by IR spectroscopy and elemental(More)
A series of unsymmetrical 2,6-bis(imino)pyridylcobalt(II) complexes, {2-[2,6-(CH(C(6)H(5))(2))(2)-4-Me-C(6)H(2)N==C(CH(3))]-6-(2,6-R(1)(2)-4-R(2)-C(6)H(2)N==CCH(3))-C(5)H(3)NCoCl(2)} where R(1) = Me, Et or (i)Pr, R(2) = H or Me, together with the new symmetrical complex 2,6-[2,6-(CH(C(6)H(5))(2))(2)-4-Me-C(6)H(2)N==C(CH(3))](2)-C(5)H(3)NCoCl(2), were(More)
