Reaction of a bulky amine borane with lanthanide trialkyls. Formation of alkyl lanthanide imide complexes†
Borane-stabilized lanthanide imides have been synthesized by the reaction of lanthanide trialkyls with a bulky amine borane. X-ray crystal structures indicate the presence of 3-center-2-electron B–H–Ln bonding and Ln–arene interactions in the solid state.
