Carbodiimides as catalysts for the reduction of a cadmium hydride complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

A rare terminal cadmium hydride complex [(BDI)CdH] (BDI = [{N(2,6-iPr2C6H3)C(Me)}2CH]) has been synthesised from [(BDI)CdCl] and LiEt3BH. The hydride can be reduced to the cadmium(I) dimer, [(BDI)CdCd(BDI)] upon treatment with a catalytic amount of diisopropyl- or dicyclohexylcarbodiimide.
