Title

Dimethylamine borane dehydrogenation chemistry: syntheses, X-ray and neutron diffraction studies of 18-electron aminoborane and 14-electron aminoboryl complexes

Language

English

Abstract

The reactions of Me 2NH·BH 3 with cationic Rh(iii) and Ir(iii) complexes have been shown to generate the 18-electron aminoborane adduct [Ir(IMes) 2(H) 2{κ 2- H 2BNMe 2)] + and the remarkable 14-electron aminoboryl complex [Rh(IMes) 2(H)-{B(H)NMe 2)] +. Neutron diffraction studies have been used for the first time to define H-atom locations in metal complexes of this type formed under catalytic conditions. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
