Lewis acid activation of molybdenum nitrides for alkyne metathesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

The substantial kinetic barrier to molybdenum nitridealkyne metathesis is facilitated by precomplexation of the borane Lewis acid B(C6F5)3, providing convenient access to metathesis-active molybdenum alkylidynes. Spectroscopic and X-ray structural analysis suggest Mo[triple bond, length as m-dash]N bond weakening upon borane complexation.
