From zinco(II) arsaketenes to silylene-stabilised zinco arsinidene complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The decarbonylation of the first zinco(II) arsaketene complexes LZnAsCO (2) and LZn(AsCO)(NHC) (4) (L = {CH(CMeNDipp)2}, Dipp = 2,6-iPr2C6H3; NHC = [C(Me)N(iPr)]2C:) has been investigated in the presence of the N-heterocyclic silylenes, tBuNHSi (tBuNHSi = [C(H)N(tBu)]2Si:) and DippNHSi (DippNHSi = [C(H)N(2,6-iPr2-C6H3)]2Si:). Depending on the steric demand of the NHSi donor, dimers or monomers of silylene-stabilised arsinidenes are isolated. The bonding situations in all of the novel arsinidene complexes have been elucidated through X-ray diffraction analyses and theoretical calculations.
