Improved reactivity of a cyclic 13/15 compound by increased steric demand.

Abstract

Herein we present the synthesis and characterization of the new four-membered Ga/P cycle [tBu2GaP(H)SitBu2Ph]2, which shows a cis/trans isomerization at ambient temperatures via a ring opening mechanism. The sterically demanding substituents on the phosphorus (-SitBu2Ph) and gallium (tBu) atoms lead to an unexpected reactivity towards bulky NHC ligands… (More)
