Group 4 metallocene catalysed full dehydrogenation of hydrazine borane

Author affiliations

Abstract

A study of the full dehydrogenation of hydrazine borane (H2N–NH2·BH3) to give H2 and N2 as gaseous products catalysed by a variety of group 4 metallocene alkyne complexes of the type Cp2M(L)(η2-Me3SiC2SiMe3) (Cp′ = substituted or unsubstituted η5-cyclopentadienyl; M = Ti, no L; M = Zr, L = pyridine) and group 4 metallocene hydrides is presented. Volumetric data show that the amount of hydrogen released is strongly dependent on both, the metal and the cyclopentadienyl ligand.
