Alkane {u03C3}-complex observation with NMR and IR spectroscopies and the synthesis of rare carbido, carbon monosulfide and carbon disulfide complexes

Young, Rowan Drury


This work describes the generation and observation of alkane {u03C3}-complexes by IR and NMR spectroscopies. Herein is reported the first tungsten alkane {u03C3}-complexes observed with NMR spectroscopy at low temperature. A series of tungsten alkane complexes of the type [({u03B7}{u2076}- C{u2086}Et{u2086})W(C0){u2082}(alkane)] (alkane = c-pentane, c-heptane, n-pentane, iso-butane, 2,2- dimethylbutane) were created by the photolysis of solutions of...[Show more]
