Isolable zirconium hydride species in the reaction of amido complexes with amine–boranes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mono-, di- and trinuclear zirconium hydride species have been isolated in the treatment of amido complexes [Zr(η5-C5Me5)(NMe2)nCl3−n] (n = 3, 1) with amine–borane adducts NHR2BH3 (R2 = Me2, HtBu). The reactions involve the formation of amidoborane ligands with Zr⋯H–B interactions which readily undergo β-hydride elimination to give hydride functions.
