Reactivity of a series of isostructural cobalt pincer complexes with CO2, CO, and H(+).

Abstract

The preparation and characterization of a series of isostructural cobalt complexes [Co(t-Bu)2P(E)Py(E)P(t-Bu)2(CH3CN)2][BF4]2 (Py = pyridine, E = CH2, NH, O, and X = BF4 (1a-c)) and the corresponding one-electron reduced analogues [Co(t-Bu)2P(E)Py(E)P(t-Bu)2(CH3CN)2][BF4]2 (2a-c) are reported. The reactivity of the reduced cobalt complexes with CO2, CO, and… (More)
