Tertiary arsine-stabilised arsenium salts: syntheses and comparisons with phosphine analogues

Kilah, Nathan; Weir, Michelle; Wild, Stanley (Bruce)


The first tertiary arsine-stabilised arsenium salts, [(L)AsMePh]OTf (L = Ph3As, Me2PhAs, [2-(MeOCH2)C6H 4]Ph2As, [2-(MeOCH2)C6H 4]Me2As), have been prepared by chloride abstraction from chloromethylphenylarsine with trimethylsilyl triflate in the presence of the arsine. The complexes have been characterised by crystallography and 1H NMR spectroscopy. The chiral cations in the complexes have structures based on the trigonal pyramid in which the arsine is coordinated orthogonally to the...[Show more]
