Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide insertion chemistry of f-block N-heterocyclic carbene complexes.


The reactions of f-block silylamido N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes ([M(L)(N{SiMe(3)}(2))(2)], M = Y, Ce, and U, L = bidentate alkoxy-tethered NHC ligand) with CO and CO(2) have been studied and compared to each other, to those of selected [M(L)(2)(N{SiMe(3)}(2))] complexes, and to those of [M(N{SiMe(3)}(2))(3)] to identify the effect of the labile… (More)
