The synthesis and coordination chemistry of boranes and boronium reagents
This thesis describes investigations into highly reactive boron-functionalised reagents and the reactions they undergo with appropriate organometallic precursors. Trifluoroborate-functionalised alkynes failed to yield isolable products on reaction with various organoruthenium substrates. However, B-ethynyl-N-methyliminoacetatoborane (HCCBMIDA) proved to be a more versatile reagent. The reaction of HCCBMIDA with Ru(CO)2(PPh3)3 or Ru(C2H4)(CO)2(PPh3)2 afforded the sigma-ethynyl hydrido complex...[Show more]
