Contrasting reactivity of anionic boron- and gallium-containing NHC analogues: E–C vs. E–M bond formation (E = B, Ga)

Author affiliations

Abstract

The anionic Group 13 NHC analogues [(CHNDipp)2E] (E = B or Ga) display contrasting reactivity towards the half-sandwich titanium imido complex Cp*TiCl(NtBu)py; while the gallium system undergoes salt metathesis yielding the first example of a titanium gallyl compound, the more nucleophilic boryl anion generates a dearomatized pyridyl fragment via attack at the ligand 2-position.
