The Th[double bond, length as m-dash]C double bond: an experimental and computational study of thorium poly-carbene complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first thorium poly-carbene complexes [(Ph2P[double bond, length as m-dash]S)2C]2Th(DME) (2) and [{[(Ph2P[double bond, length as m-dash]S)2C]3Th}Li2(DME)]n (3) have been prepared and structurally characterized. DFT calculations reveal that the Th[double bond, length as m-dash]C bond is polarized toward the nucleophilic carbene carbon atom, which is further verified by the experimental observation that the Th[double bond, length as m-dash]C bond shows a nucleophilic behavior with Ph2CO.
