Fluoride, bifluoride and trifluoromethyl complexes of iridium(I) and rhodium(I)
MetadataShow full item record
Herein we report robust methods for the preparation and full characterisation of a range of Ir(I) and Rh(I) fluoride and bifluoride complexes using N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) as ancillary ligands. The processes that link the fluoride and the bifluoride species are investigated and reports of the first Ir–bifluoride and Ir(I)–NHC and Rh(I)–NHC trifluoromethyl complexes are revealed.
