Halide exchange from the species tBu(3)P(CO(2))B(C(6)F(5))(2)Cl 1 with Me(3)SiOSO(2)CF(3) gave tBu(3)P(CO(2))B(C(6)F(5))(2)(OSO(2)CF(3)) 2. Similarly, Lewis acid exchange occurs in reactions of 1 with Al(C(6)F(5))(3) and [Cp(2)TiMe][B(C(6)F(5))(4)] affording the products, tBu(3)P(CO(2))Al(C(6)F(5))(3)3 and [tBu(3)P(CO(2))TiCp(2)Cl][B(C(6)F(5))(4)] 4.
The reaction of a solution of B(C6F4H)3 and either iPr3P or tBu3P with CO2 afforded the species R3P(CO2)B(C6F4H)3 (R=iPr (1), tBu (2)). In a similar fashion the boranes, RB(C6F5)2 (R=hexyl, cyclohexyl (Cy), norbornyl), ClB(C6F5)2, or PhB(C6F5)2 were combined with tBu3P and CO2 to give the species tBu3P(CO2)BR(C6F5)2 (R=hexyl (3), Cy (4), norbornyl (5), Cl(More)
Reactions of the perfluoroarylboranes RB(C(6)F(5))(2) (R = C(6)F(5), Ph, Cl, OC(6)F(5)) with Me(3)SiCH(N(2)), (C(6)F(5))CH(N(2)) or Ph(2)C(N(2)) yield (C(6)F(5))(2)B(Me(3)SiCH(C(6)F(5))) 1, (C(6)F(5))B(Me(3)SiCH(C(6)F(5)))(2) 2, (C(6)F(5))B(Me(3)SiCH(C(6)F(5)))(Me(3)SiCH(C(6)H(5))) 3, (C(6)F(5))(2)B(CH(C(6)F(5))(2)) 4, ClB(C(6)F(5))(Ph(2)C(C(6)F(5))) 5 and(More)
Diphenyldiazomethane reacts with HB(C6F5)2 and B(C6F5)3 resulting in 1,1-hydroboration and adduct formation, respectively. The hydroboration proceeds via a concerted reaction involving initial formation of the adduct 1, Ph2CN2BH(C6F5)2. The highly sensitive adduct Ph2CN2B(C6F5)3, 5 which liberates N2 prompting generation of Ph2CB(C6F5)3. DFT Computations(More)
The impact of substituent changes on phosphorus and boron-containing frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) has been examined. The phosphites (RO)(3)P R = Me, Ph form classical Lewis acid-base adducts of the formula (RO)(3)PB(C(6)F(5))(3) R = Me ; R = Ph , whereas P(O-2,4-(t)Bu(2)C(6)H(3))(3) and P(O-2,6-Me(2)C(6)H(3))(3) generate FLPs. Nonetheless, these latter(More)
