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 reduction of Ar*GeCl (Ar* = C6H3-2,6-Trip2; Trip = C6H2-2,4,6-i-Pr3) with one equivalent of potassium leads to the formation of a germanium analogue of an alkyne Ar*GeGeAr* 1; reaction of 1 with 2,3-dimethyl-1,3-butadiene yields [Ar*Ge(CH2C(Me)C(Me)CH2)CH2C(Me)=]2 2, which was structurally characterized.
A series of group 13 metal complexes featuring the beta-diketiminate ligand [[(C(6)H(3)-2,6-i-Pr(2))NC(Me)](2)CH](-) (i.e., [Dipp(2)nacnac](-), Dipp = C(6)H(3)-2,6-i-Pr(2)) have been prepared and spectroscopically and structurally characterized. The chloride derivatives Dipp(2)nacnacMCl(2) (M = Al (3), Ga (5), In (8)) were isolated in good yield by the(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the first divalent germanium, tin, and lead monoamide derivatives of the parent amide group -NH(2) are presented. They have the general formula (ArMNH(2))(2) (M = Ge, Ar = Ar'(C(6)H(3)-2,6-Pr(i)(2)) or Ar* (C(6)H(3)-2,6(C(6)H(2)-2,4,6-Pr(i)(3))); M = Sn, Ar = Ar*; M = Pb, Ar = Ar*). For germanium and tin, they were(More)
The preparation and X-ray crystal structures of (CyNC)Au(I)CN, (n-BuNC)Au(I)CN, and (i-PrNC)Au(I)CN.0.5CH(2)Cl(2) are reported and compared with those of (MeNC)Au(I)CN and (t-BuNC)Au(I)CN, which were previously described. These linear molecules are all organized through aurophilic interactions into three structural classes: simple chains ((CyNC)Au(I)CN and(More)
Luminescent [(NH(3))(4)Pt][Au(CN)(2)](2).1.5(H(2)O), which forms from aqueous solutions of [(NH(3))(4)Pt]Cl(2) and K[Au(CN)(2)], crystallizes with extended chains of the two ions with multiple close Pt...Au (3.2804(4) and 3.2794(4) A) and Au...Au (3.2902(5), 3.3312(5), and 3.1902(4) A) contacts. Nonluminescent [(NH(3))(4)Pt][Ag(CN)(2)](2).1.4(H(2)O) is(More)
The colorless salts [C5H10NH2][Au (CN)2], [C4H8NH2][Au (CN)2], [Ph2NNH3][Au (CN)2] H2O and [(n-C3H7)4N][Au(CN)2] H2O have been prepared by evaporation of aqueous solutions of potassium dicyanoaurate and the chloride salt of the appropriate cation. Hydrogen bonding between the cations and the cyano groups of the anions facilitates the formation of structures(More)
A new compound that exhibits the shortest intermolecular Au...Au distance ever reported for neutral RNCAuX complexes is found to exhibit a counterintuitive higher-energy Au-centered phosphorescence than that in an analogous compound with a much longer Au...Au distance, presumably due to a different extent of excited-state distortion in dimers vs. extended(More)
