Dinitrogen activation in sterically-hindered three-coordinate transition metal complexes

Christian, Gemma; Driver, J; Stranger, Robert


Dinuclear metal systems based on sterically-hindered, three-coordinate transition metal complexes of the type ML3 where the ancillary ligands L comprise bulky organic substituents, hold great promise synthetically for the activation and scission of small, multiply-bonded molecules such as N2, NO and N2O. In this study we have employed density functional methods to identify the metal/ligand combinations which achieve optimum activation and/or cleavage of N2. Strong π donor ligands such as NH2...[Show more]
