Reactions of group III biheterocyclic complexes.


Group III alkyl complexes supported by a ferrocene diamide ligand (1,1'-fc(NSi(t)BuMe(2))(2)) have been found to be reactive toward aromatic N-heterocycles such as 1-methylimidazole and pyridines. These reactions were investigated experimentally and computationally. An initial C-H activation event is followed by a coupling reaction to form biheterocyclic… (More)
