Synthesis and Mechanism of Formation of Novel NHC−NAC Bis-Carbene Complexes of Gold(I)
Novel [Au(NHC)(DIC)]BF4 complexes (NHC = SIMes, IMes, SIPr, IPr; DIC = 2,6-dimethylphenyl isocyanide) were synthesized and characterized. These substrates react with secondary amines at roomExpand

Reversible addition of protic molecules to co-ordinated di-2-pyridyl ketone in palladium(II), platinum(II), and gold(III) complexes. X-Ray crystal structures of
Palladium(II), platinum(II), and gold(III) species react with di-2-pyridyl ketone (dpk) to give complexes in which one or two ligand molecules in the original keto- or in a newly formed diolic formExpand

Kinetics of the displacement of cyclobutane-1,1-dicarboxylate from diammine(cyclobutane-1,1-dicarboxylato)platinum(II) in aqueous solution
The displacement of 1,1-cyclobutanedicarboxylate (cbdca2–) from [Pt(NH3)2(cbdca)] has been studied in aqueous solution. In the presence of acid the process resembles the successive displacement ofExpand

Palladium(0)-Catalyzed Cis−Trans Alkene Isomerizations
The cis−trans isomerization of some olefins bearing strong electron-withdrawing substituents (dmma and E-tse) is catalyzed by their mere coordination to a suitable Pd(0) fragment without any externalExpand

The appearance of a stable intermediate in some substitution reactions of (1,5-diamino-3-azapentane)pyridinepalladium(II) perchlorate
The kinetics and equilibria of the reversible displacement of pyridine (py) from [Pd(dien)(py)]2+(dien = 1,5-diamino-3-azapentane) in aqueous solution have been studied. In acidic solution theExpand

Migratory Insertion of Allyl Groups across the Pd−C Bond in Palladium(II) Isocyanide Complexes. The Fundamental Interplay between Temperature and Allyl Hapticity
The 2,6-dimethylphenyl- and tert-butylisocyanides (DIC and TIC, respectively) react in chlorinated solvents with the allyl dimers [Pd(μ-Cl)(η3-C3H3Me2)]2 and [Pd(μ-Cl)(η3-C3H5)]2, giving theExpand
