Synthesis, characterization and catalytic activity of stable [(NHC)H][ZnXY2] (NHC = N-Heterocyclic carbene, X, Y = Cl, Br) species
MetadataShow full item record
The synthesis and characterization of imidazol(in)ium-based zinc(II) halide salts are reported. These compounds present interesting structural features and exhibit high stability. Their catalytic activity was explored in the methylation of amines with CO2 and PhSiH3.
