5-Mercaptotetrazolyl-derived metallaboratranes

Hill, Anthony; Schwich, Torsten; Xiong, Yao Yao


The reactions of 1-tert butyl-5-thiotetrazole (HtttBu) with Na[BH4] provides Na[H2B(tttBu)2] (Na[1]) or Na[HB(tttBu)3] (Na[2]) in refluxing THF or xylene, respectively. Treating [RuCl(Ph)(CO)(PPh3)2] with Na[2] affords the triply-buttressed ruthenaboratrane [Ru(CO)(PPh3){κ4-B,S,S′,S′′-B(tttBu)3}] (5) whilst Na[1] with [IrCl(CO)(PPh3)2] or [RuCl(Ph)(CO)(PPh3)2] provides rare examples of doubly-buttressed metallaboratranes [IrH(CO)(PPh3){κ3-B,S,S′-BH(tttBu)2}] (7) and...[Show more]
