Dinitrogen Activation by Fryzuk's [Nb(P 2 N 2 )] Complex and Comparison with the Laplaza-Cummins [Mo{N(R)Ar} 3 ] and Schrock [Mo(N 3 N)] Systems

Christian, Gemma; Terrett, Richard; Stranger, Robert; Cavigliasso, German; Yates, Brian F


The reaction profile of N2 with Fryzuk's [Nb(P2N 2)] (P2N2 = PhP(CH2SiMe 2NSiMe2CH2)2PPh) complex is explored by density functional calculations on the model [Nb(PH3) 2(NH2)2] system. The effects of ligand constraints, coordination number, metal and ligand donor atom on the reaction energetics are examined and compared to the analogous reactions of N2 with the three-coordinate LaplazaCummins [Mo{N(R)Ar}3] and four-coordinate Schrock [Mo(N3N)] (N3N = [(RNCH 2CH2)3N]3-) systems. When the model...[Show more]
