Selective encapsulation of volatile and reactive methyl iodide.
A simple organic molecular container can selectively encapsulate the volatile and highly reactive MeI through hydrogen-bonding interactions in solution. The remarkable encapsulation of MeI withoutExpand
Remarkably short metal-metal bonds: a lantern-type quintuply bonded dichromium(I) complex.
The field of quadruply bonded dinuclear complexes in which two metal atoms are embraced by eight ligands has been considered mature. The bonding and electronic structures of these compounds have beenExpand
Journey from Mo-Mo quadruple bonds to quintuple bonds.
Heating K(4)Mo(2)Cl(8) and 2 equiv of Li[RC(NDipp)(2)] (R = H, Ph; Dipp = 2,6-i-Pr(2)C(6)H(3)) in tetrahydrofuran (THF) at 60 degrees C gives two paddlewheel type quadruply bonded dimolybdenumExpand
Anionic Roussin's red esters (RREs) syn-/anti-[Fe(mu-SEt)(NO)2]2(-): the critical role of thiolate ligands in regulating the transformation of RREs into dinitrosyl iron complexes and the anionic RREs.
The anionic syn-/ anti-[Fe(mu-SEt)(NO) 2] 2 (-) ( 2a) were synthesized and characterized by IR, UV-vis, EPR, and X-ray diffraction. The geometry of the [Fe(mu-S) 2Fe] core is rearranged in going fromExpand
Reactions of metal-metal quintuple bonds with alkynes: [2+2+2] and [2+2] cycloadditions.
Benzene, C6H6, is one of the most important molecules in organic chemistry. The term aromaticity was developed from the study of benzene and has become an important and fundamental concept inExpand
Stepwise construction of the Cr-Cr quintuple bond and its destruction upon axial coordination.
Give me five! Terdentate 2,6-diamidopyridyl ligands were used to stabilize the Cr-Cr quintuple bond and have made it possible to isolate and characterize not only the Cr-Cr quintuple-bonded complex,Expand
Copper(I)-Catalyzed Aerobic Oxidative Azide-Alkene Cyclo- addition: An Efficient Synthesis of Substituted 1,2,3-Triazoles
A novel, copper(I)-promoted azide-alkene aerobic oxidative cycloaddition protocol was devel- oped for the regioselective synthesis of 1,4-disubsti- tuted/1,4,5-trisubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles by usingExpand
A Structurally Characterized Nonheme Cobalt-Hydroperoxo Complex Derived from Its Superoxo Intermediate via Hydrogen Atom Abstraction.
Bubbling O2 into a THF solution of CoII(BDPP) (1) at -90 °C generates an O2 adduct, Co(BDPP)(O2) (3). The resonance Raman and EPR investigations reveal that 3 contains a low spin cobalt(III) ionExpand
Dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNICs) bearing O-bound nitrito ligand: reversible transformation between the six-coordinate {Fe(NO)2}9 [(1-MeIm)2(eta(2)-ONO)Fe(NO)2] (g = 2.013) and four-coordinate
In contrast to the four-coordinate tetrahedral {Fe(NO)2}9 DNICs with an EPR g value of 2.03, the newly synthesized nonclassical six-coordinate {Fe(NO)2}9 DNIC [(1-MeIm)2(eta(2)-ONO)Fe(NO)2] (1-MeIm =Expand
