Two functional groups can be delivered at once to organo-rare earth complexes, (L)MR(2) and (L)(2)MR (M = Sc, Y; L = ({1-C(NDippCH(2)CH(2)N)}CH(2)CMe(2)O), Dipp = 2,6-(i)Pr(2)-C(6)H(3); R = CH(2)SiMe(3), CH(2)CMe(3)), via the addition of E-X across the metal-carbene bond to form a zwitterionic imidazolinium-metal complex, (L(E))MR(2)X, where L(E) = {1-EC… CONTINUE READING
