Structure and reactivity studies of transition metals ligated by tBuSi3X (X = O, NH, N, S, and CC)

Abstract

Use of the tBu3Si group can sterically protect O, N, S, and acetylide donors, enabling chemistry at low-coordinate transition metal centers. This article provides examples from these laboratories on the utilization of tBu3SiO, tBu3SiNH, tBu3SiN2−, tBu3SiS and tBu3SiCC as ligands in exploratory synthesis and reactivity studies of transition metal complexes.
