Beryllium derivatives of a phenyl-substituted β-diketiminate: a well-defined ring opening reaction of tetrahydrofuran

Author affiliations

Abstract

The phenyl-substituted β-diketiminate ligand precursor PhLH, [(Dipp)NC(Ph)CHC(Ph)NH(Dipp)] (Dipp = 2,6-di-isopropylphenyl) and its lithium and beryllium halide derivatives [PhLLi(OEt2)], [PhLBeCl] and [PhLBeI] have been synthesised and characterised by NMR and X-ray structural analysis. The iodoberyllium complex [PhLBeI] reacts with THF in a well-defined ring-opening insertion reaction to form the 4-iodo-n-butoxide complex [PhLBeO(CH2)4I].
