A series of light- and air-stable tris(phosphino)borato silver(I) complexes has been synthesized, structurally and spectroscopically characterized, and implemented in the growth of low resistivity metallic silver thin films by aerosol-assisted chemical vapor deposition (AACVD). Of the four complexes in the series, [RB(CH2PR'2) 3]AgPEt3 (R = Ph (1, 3), (n)Bu (2, 4); R' = Ph (1, 2), (i)Pr (3, 4), complexes 1 and 2 have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Complex 2 represents a… CONTINUE READING
