The reduction of terphenylgermanium(II) or terphenyltin(II) chlorides with alkali metals was investigated. Treatment of Ar'GeCl or ArGeCl (Ar' = C(6)H(3)-2,6-Dipp(2), Dipp = C(6)H(3)-2,6-Pr(i)(2); Ar = C(6)H(3)-2,6-Trip(2), Trip = C(6)H(2)-2,4,6-Pr(i)(3)) with lithium, sodium, or potassium afforded the neutral alkyne analogues Ar'GeGeAr', 1, ArGeGeAr, 2,(More)
The effects of different terphenyl ligand substituents on the quintuple Cr-Cr bonding in arylchromium(I) dimers stabilized by bulky terphenyl ligands (Ar) were investigated. A series of complexes, ArCrCrAr (1-4; Ar = C6H2-2,6-(C6H3-2,6-iPr2)2-4-X, where X = H, SiMe3, OMe, and F), was synthesized and structurally characterized. Their X-ray crystal structures(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the compound Me3Si-4-Ar'SnSnAr'-4-SiMe3 (Ar'-4-SiMe3 = C6H2-2,6-(C6H3-2,6-i-Pr2)2-4-SiMe3) shows that it has a Sn-Sn bond length = 3.066(1) A and a Sn-Sn-C bending angle of 99.25(14) degrees . These parameters differ by about 0.4 A and about 26 degrees from those previously reported for the closely related Ar'SnSnAr'(More)
A series of symmetric divalent Sn(II) hydrides of the general form [(4-X-Ar')Sn(mu-H)]2 (4-X-Ar' = C6H2-4-X-2,6-(C6H3-2,6-iPr2)2; X = H, MeO, tBu, and SiMe3; 2, 6, 10, and 14), along with the more hindered asymmetric tin hydride (3,5-iPr2-Ar*)SnSn(H)2(3,5-iPr2-Ar*) (16) (3,5-iPr2-Ar* = 3,5-iPr2-C6H-2,6-(C6H2-2,4,6-iPr3)2), have been isolated and(More)
Trimesityliridium(III) (mesityl = 2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) reacts with O(2) to form oxotrimesityliridium(V), (mes)(3)Ir=O, in a reaction that is cleanly second order in iridium. In contrast to initial reports by Wilkinson, there is no evidence for substantial accumulation of an intermediate in this reaction. The oxo complex (mes)(3)Ir=O oxidizes(More)
Oxotrimesityliridium(V), (mes)3Ir=O (mes = 2,4,6-trimethylphenyl), and trimesityliridium(III), (mes)3Ir, undergo extremely rapid degenerate intermetal oxygen atom transfer at room temperature. At low temperatures, the two complexes conproportionate to form (mes)3Ir-O-Ir(mes)3, the 2,6-dimethylphenyl analogue of which has been characterized(More)
A series of stable aryl gallium(I) terphenyl derivatives was synthesized and characterized spectroscopically, structurally and by density functional calculations. Dimeric structures with trans-bent planar CGaGaC core arrangements were observed for [(GaAr*-4-tBu)(2)] (7, Ar*-4-tBu = C(6)H(2)-2,6(C(6)H(2)-2,4,6-iPr(3))(2)-4-tBu) and [(GaAr*-4-CF(3))(2)] (8,(More)
