In Search of Fulminate Analogues: Ln M≡CP=NR

Frogley, Benjamin; Hill, Anthony; Shang, Rong; Sharma, Manab; Willis, Anthony


The "CPNR" ligand may be viewed as being isolobal with fulminate, CNO; however, attempts to prepare a complex of such a ligand resulted instead in a range of novel imino and aminophosphinocarbyne complexes. Sequential treatment of [Mo(≡CBr)(CO)2 (Tp*)] (Tp*=hydrotris(dimethylpyrazolyl)borate) with nBuLi and ClP=NMes* (Mes*=C6 H2 tBu3 -2,4,6) afforded mixtures of the complexes [Mo(≡CPnBuNHMes*)(CO)2 (Tp*)] and traces of the bimetallic products [Mo2 {μ2 -C2 P2 O(NHMes)2 }(CO)4 (Tp*)2 ] and [Mo2...[Show more]
