While iron-catalyzed Kumada cross-coupling reactions with simple iron salts have been known since the early 1970s, the nature of the in situ-formed iron species remains elusive. Herein, we report the synthesis of the homoleptic tetralkyliron(III) ferrate complex [MgCl(THF)5][FeMe4] from the reaction of FeCl3 with MeMgBr in THF. Upon warming, this distorted(More)
Herein we present a series of new α-iminopyridine-based iron-PNN pincer complexes [FeBr2LPNN] (1), [Fe(CO)2LPNN] (2), [Fe(CO)2LPNN](BF4) (3), [Fe(F)(CO)2LPNN](BF4) (4), and [Fe(H)(CO)2LPNN](BF4) (5) with formal oxidation states ranging from Fe(0) to Fe(II) (LPNN = 2-[(di-tert-butylphosphino)methyl]-6-[1-(2,4,6-mesitylimino)ethyl]pyridine). The complexes(More)
Transition metal complexes supported by pincer ligands have many important applications. Here, the syntheses of five-coordinate PNP pincer-supported Fe complexes of the type (PNP)FeCl2 (PNP = HN{CH2CH2(PR2)}2, R = iPr ((iPr)PNP), tBu ((tBu)PNP), or cyclohexyl ((Cy)PNP)) are reported. In the solid state, ((iPr)PNP)FeCl2 was characterized in two different(More)
A series of iron dicarbonyl complexes with bipyridine-based PNN pincer ligands were synthesized and characterized by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy ((1) H, (13) C, (15) N, (31) P), IR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, (57) Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, XPS spectroscopy, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The complexes with the general formula [(R-PNN)Fe(CO)2(More)
We report the first example of tuning the large magneto-optic activity of a chiral polymer by addition of stable organic biradicals. The spectral dispersion of Verdet constant, which quantifies magneto-optic response, differs substantially between the base polymer and the nanocomposite. We employed a microscopic model, supported by atomistic calculations,(More)
The combination of iron salts and N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands is a highly effective combination in catalysis, with observed catalytic activities being highly dependent on the nature of the NHC ligand. Detailed spectroscopic and electronic structure studies have been performed on both three- and four-coordinate iron(II)-NHC complexes using a(More)
Homoleptic complexes of the anion of 7-azaindole (AzaIn) were synthesized and characterized for a series of 3d transition metals. For Mn(II), Fe(II), and Co(II), complexes of formula Na2[M(AzaIn)4]·2L (L = tetrahydrofuran (THF), 2-MeTHF, toluene, or benzene) were isolated by treatment of the corresponding metal chloride salts with 7-azaindole in the(More)
