Carbene rearrangements in three-coordinate N-heterocyclic carbene complexes of cobalt(II) bis(trimethylsilyl)amide.

Abstract

The synthesis and molecular structures of the cobalt(II) N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes [(NHC)Co{N(SiMe3)2}2], where NHC = 1,3-bis(diisopropylphenyl)imidazolylidene (IPr) (6), 1,3-bis(mesityl)imidazolylidene (IMes) (7), and 1,3-bis(tert-butyl)imidazol-2-ylidene (I(t)Bu) (8), are reported. Complexes 6-8 are rare examples of three-coordinate cobalt… (More)
