Heterolytic H2 activation on a carbene-ligated rhodathiaborane promoted by isonido-nido cage opening

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new mechanism of H2 activation is reported to occur on a carbene-ligated rhodathiaborane that features metal–thiaborane bifunctional synergistic effects. The key is the creation of vacant coordination sites by an isonido-nido structural transformation leading to the heterolytic H–H bond splitting.
