Heteroleptic [1]zirconametalloarenophanes: potential precursors to metal-enriched metallopolymers.

Abstract

[1]Zirconametalloarenophanes [Cr(η(5)-C(5)H(4))ZrCp'(2)(η(7)-C(7)H(6))] and [Mn(η(5)-C(5)H(4))ZrCp'(2)(η(6)-C(6)H(5))] (Cp' = C(5)H(4)(t)Bu) have been isolated for the first time. These species represent potential precursors en route to metal-enriched metallopolymers by ROP. The electronic structure was assessed by means of UV-visible spectroscopy and TD… (More)
