Article
Stabilization of low oxidation gold anions as aurate or auride by organic ligands has long been a synthetic challenge, owing to the proneness of low-valent gold centres to cluster. Despite being the most electronegative metal, isolable gold(I) aurate complexes have only been obtained from a few σ-withdrawing organo- and organo-main group ligands. S...

Generation of dihydrogen from water splitting, also known as water reduction, is a key process to access a sustainable hydrogen economy for energy production and usage. The key step is the selective reduction of a protic hydrogen to an accessible and reactive hydride, which has proven difficult at a p-block element. Although frustrated Lewis pair (...
Article
The typical aza-BODIPYs in the dye family are known for bright fluorescence, excellent stability, and tunable absorption wavelengths. Hence, these dyes are attracting the increasing attention. Aza-BODIPYs having the maxima absorption in the near-infrared (NIR) region (650-900 nm) are very favorable for bioimaging in vivo due to the less photo-damag...
Article
A new efficient metal‐based frustrated Lewis pair constructed by (P t Bu 3 ) 2 Pt and B(C 6 F 5 ) 3 was designed through density functional theory calculations for the catalytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane (AB). The reaction was composed by the successive dehydrogenation of AB and H 2 liberation, which occurs through the cooperative functions...

Structurally characterized hexacoordinate organophosphorus compounds remain rare due to their highly reactive nature and thermal instability. Herein we report the first synthesis of a pair of O-facial and O-meridional hexacoordinate oxaphosphates (5B and 5D) obtained from the O-apical and O-equatorial β-hydroxyalkylphosphoranes 3 and 4. This was ac...
Article
Direct structural evidence for group 11 metal-mediated B-B bond activation was obtained from reactions of the tri(tert-butyl)azadiboriridine (1) with AuCl(L) complexes. The AuCl(SMe2) reaction afforded [η²-B,B-B(tBu)N(tBu)B(tBu)]AuCl (2) by ligand displacement. More donating phosphines as co-ligands led to B–B bond cleavage accompanied by either ha...
Article
Borverbindungen In ihrer Zuschrift auf S. 15436 berichten Y. Yamamoto et al. über die Isolierung einer gebogenen Bor-Kette, in der drei Boratome über Mehrfachbindungen ohne zusätzliche Liganden verknüpft sind. Diese Spezies kann auch als ein Bis(borylen)-stabilisiertes Borylen aufgefasst werden.
Article
Boron Compounds In their Communication on page 15234 ff., Y. Yamamoto et al. report the isolation of a bent boron chain, in which three boron atoms are connected via multiple bonds without additional ligands. This species can also be viewed as a bis(borylene)-stabilized borylene.

A range of bis(alkylidynyl)phosphines RP{C[triple bond, length as m-dash]M(CO)2(Tp*)}2 (M = Mo, W; R = Cl, Ph, Cy; Tp* = hydrotris(dimethylpyrazolyl)borate) are obtained from the reactions of [M([triple bond, length as m-dash]CLi)(CO)2(Tp*)] with Cl2PR or alternatively via the palladium(0)-mediated reactions of [W([triple bond, length as m-dash]CBr...
Article
A heterocyclic manganese complex () derived from a carbonyl-borylene coupling reaction undergoes isomerisation, during which the former borylene moiety migrates to the cyclopentadienyl ligand and inserts into a C-H bond. This reaction and a computational study of its mechanism are discussed.
Article
The reactions of isonitriles with a variety of metalloboryl and metalloborylene species are shown to yield a range of products, none of which display the typical Lewis acid-base reactivity previously observed between such metal complexes and other Lewis bases. Insertions of one, or several, isonitriles into the metal-boron bond give cyclic and spir...
Article
Terminal borylene complexes of group 6-10 metals have been prepared through a number of synthetic strategies, displaying a wide structural diversity with numerous coordination modes of the borylene ligand [:BR]. Earlier, amino-substituted borylenes were found to serve as borylene ligand transfer reagents to a range of organic and organometallic sub...

The sequential treatment of [Mo(≡CBr)(CO)2{HB(pzMe2)3}] (pz = pyrazol-1-yl) with nBuLi and ClBR2 (BR2 = B(NMe2)2, O2C6H4) in tetrahydrofuran provides the borylcarbyne complexes [Mo(≡CBR2)(CO)2{HB(pzMe2)3}], in contrast to the reactions of many haloborane electrophiles, which result in the formation of the hydroxypentylidyne complex [Mo{≡C(CH2)4OH}(...
Article
The successive reactions of [Mo(≡CBr)(CO)2(Tp*)] (Tp* = hydrotris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)borate) with nBuLi and ClAPh3 (A = Ge, Sn, Pb) afford the carbyne complexes [Mo(≡CAPh3)(CO)2(Tp*)] but fail in the case of ClCPh3 and ClSiPh3. The silicon analog [Mo(≡CSiPh3)(CO)2(Tp*)] may, however, be obtained via a multistep Fischer-Mayr synthesis. [...
Article
The successive reactions of [Mo(≡CBr)(CO)2(Tp*)] (1; Tp* = hydrotris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)borate) with BuLi and N,N'-dimethylthiocarbamoyl chloride provides as intended, via formation of [Mo(≡CLi)(CO)2(Tp*)] (2a), the thiocarbamoyl alkylidyne complex [Mo{≡CC(=S)NMe2}(CO)2(Tp*)] (3). Although the yields are poor, anal. of the side products obtai...

3-(Thiobenzyl)indene (2) was prepd. from lithium indenide and dibenzyl disulfide. Deprotonation with BuLi/TMEDA in THF and the addn. of FeCl2 gave the expected 1:1 mixt. of rac- and meso-bis(1-thiobenzylindenyl)iron(II) (3). 13C-NMR studies in THF suggest that 3 undergoes a ring-flipping process to interconvert rac- and meso-3. Complex 3 exhibits a...
