Copper(I) complexes bearing carbenes beyond classical N-heterocyclic carbenes : synthesis and catalytic activity in “click chemistry”
MetadataShow full item record
The synthesis and characterization of abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene, cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene, and mesoionic carbene copper(I) complexes are reported. These organometallic species are obtained via a versatile and inexpensive synthetic pathway using readily available reactants, namely copper oxide and iminium salts. The catalytic activity of this series of complexes was evaluated in the [3+2] cycloaddition of alkynes with azides (CuAAC). Outstanding catalytic properties were observed for the abnormal NHC- and triazolylidene-based copper(I) complexes.

Mechanism of the catalytic carboxylation of alkylboronates with CO2 using Ni-NHC complexes : a DFT study Delarmelina, Maicon; Marelli, Enrico; Carneiro, Jose; Nolan, Steven; Buehl, Michael (2017-10-20) - Journal articleA new mechanism is proposed for the Ni-catalysed carboxylation of organoboronates with CO2. DFT investigations at the PBE0-D3 level have shown that direct CO2 addition to the catalysts [Ni(NHC)(Allyl)Cl] (1NHC, NHC = IMe, ...

Z.; Cavallo, Luigi; Cazin, Catherine S. J. (2017-12) - Journal articleA family of copper(I)-NHC azolyl complexes was synthesized and deployed in the hydrosilylation of dicyclo-hexylketone to probe the role of the anionic ligand on catalytic performance. The azolyl ligand is shown to have a ...
