The use of Bu(3)SnH and Me(3)SnH in the synthesis of HP(CF(3))(2) and HP(C(6)F(5))(2) from the corresponding bromides leads to a high-yield synthesis, which additionally provides these compounds in large quantities. The pentacarbonyl tungsten complexes [W(CO)(5)PH(CF(3))(2)] and [W(CO)(5)PH(C(6)F(5))(2)] were synthesized reacting the corresponding phosphanes with [W(CO)(5)THF] and characterized by X-ray and elemental analysis as well as multinuclear NMR and mass spectroscopy. The vibrational… CONTINUE READING
