Structural diversity for phosphine complexes of stibenium and stibinidenium cations

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reactions of trimethylphosphine or diphosphines with SbCl3 in the presence of AlCl3 or Me3SiSO3CF3 give ligand stabilized stibenium and stibinidenium cations. The geometry at each antimony center reveals a variety of environments for antimony that describes new bonding and highlights new directions in the chemistry of the pnictogen elements.
