Unconventional pincer ligands and their transition metal complexes

McQueen, Caitlin Meredith Anne


This thesis describes investigations into unconventional pincer systems incorporating non-classical central donor groups. Direct reaction of 1,3-bis(diphenylphosphinomethyl)-2,3-dihydro-1H-1,3,2-benzodiazaborole (dppBH) with metal complexes and subsequent ligand manipulations have provided novel ruthenium and, for the first time, osmium boryl pincer complexes. The boryl complexes thus prepared have been observed to undergo various subsequent reactions involving the chloride and...[Show more]
