Tables of 1 H and 13 C NMR chemical shifts have been compiled for common organic compounds often used as reagents or found as products or contaminants in deuterated organic solvents. Building upon the work of Gottlieb, Kotlyar, and Nudelman in the Journal of Organic Chemistry, signals for common impurities are now reported in additional NMR solvents… (More)
The selective transformation of ubiquitous but inert C H bonds to other functional groups has far-reaching practical implications, ranging from more efficient strategies for fine chemical synthesis to the replacement of current petrochemical feedstocks by less expensive and more readily available alkanes. The past twenty years have seen many examples of C-H… (More)
O ur understanding of bonding in transition metal complexes, as well as our ability to use that understanding in the synthesis and application of new species, has evolved over the last 100 years; and in some sense this special feature on the coordination chemistry of saturated molecules may be considered to represent its culmination. The nature of complexes… (More)
The yield of triptane from the reaction of methanol with zinc iodide is dramatically increased by addition of phosphorous or hypophosphorous acid, via transfer of hydride from a P-H bond to carbocationic intermediates.
The alkylaluminum-complexed zirconocene trihydride cation [(SBI)Zr(μ-H)(3)(Al(i)Bu(2))(2)](+), which is obtained by reaction of (SBI)ZrCl(2) with [Ph(3)C][B(C(6)F(5))(4)] and excess HAl(i)Bu(2) in toluene solution, catalyzes the formation of isotactic polypropene when exposed to propene at -30 °C. This cation remains the sole observable species in catalyst… (More)
