The bis(N-heterocyclic carbene)(diphen-A C H T U N G T R E N N U N G ylacetylene)palladium complex [Pd(ITMe) 2 (PhC CPh)] (ITMe = 1,3,4,5-tetramethylimidazol-2-yli-dene) acts as a highly active pre-catalyst in the di-boration and silaboration of azobenzenes to synthesize a series of novel functionalized hydrazines. The reactions proceed using commercially(More)
The novel complex cis-[(ITMe)2 Pd(SiMe3 )2 (ITMe=1,3,4,5-tetramethylimidazol-2-ylidene) has been synthesized by mild oxidative cleavage of Me3 SiSiMe3 using [(ITMe)2 Pd(0) ]. The use of this complex as precatalyst for the cis-bis(silyl)ation of alkynes using unactivated disilanes is reported.
