Three monomeric Cd(II) phenoxide complexes have been prepared by reacting Cd[N(SiMe(3))(2)](2) with 2 equiv of 2,6-disubstituted phenols bearing sterically bulky tert-butyl or phenyl groups. The strongly coordinating solvents THF, tetrahydrothiophene (THT), and pyridine used for these reactions were incorporated into the metal's coordination sphere, leading… CONTINUE READING
