Zwitterionic indenylammonium with carbon-centred reactivity towards reversible CO2 binding and catalytic reduction.

Abstract

We report the synthesis and characterization of a zwitterionic indenylammonium compound and its carbon-centred reactivity towards reversible CO2 binding at ambient temperature through its formal insertion into a C-H bond as well as the catalytic hydroboration of CO2 to methanol derivatives.
