Gold-acetonyl complexes : from side-products to valuable synthons
(2015-03-27) - Journal article
A new synthetic strategy was devised leading to the formation of complexes, such as [Au(IPr)(CH2COCH3)]. The approach capitalizes on the formation of a decomposition product observed in the course of the synthesis of ...
Synthesis and characterization of gold(I) complexes of dibenzotropylidene-functionalized NHC ligands (Trop-NHCs)
(2015-01-12) - Journal article
Gold(I) complexes of dibenzotropylidene-functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene ligands (Trop-NHCs) have been prepared in order to investigate their structural features and to reveal possible interactions of the olefin unit ...
Evaluation of an olefin metathesis pre-catalyst with a bulky and electron-rich N-heterocyclic carbene
(2015-03-15) - Journal article
The commercially-available metathesis pre-catalyst M23 has been evaluated alongside new complex [RuCl2((3-phenyl)indenylidene)(PPh3)(SIPrOMe)] (1), which bears a para-methoxy-substituted N-heterocyclic carbene ligand. ...
General and mild Ni0-catalyzed α-arylation of ketones using aryl chlorides
(2015-03-02) - Journal article
A general methodology for the α-arylation of ketones using a nickel catalyst has been developed. The new well-defined [Ni(IPr*)(cin)Cl] (1c) pre-catalyst showed great efficiency for this transformation, allowing the coupling ...
What can NMR spectroscopy of selenoureas and phosphinidenes teach us about the π-accepting abilities of N-heterocyclic carbenes?
(2015-03) - Journal article
The electronic nature of the interaction of NHCs with metal centres is of interest when exploring their properties, how these properties influence those of metal complexes, and how these properties might depend on ligand ...
Fluoride, bifluoride and trifluoromethyl complexes of iridium(I) and rhodium(I)
(2015-01-04) - Journal article
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 ...
