Synthesis, structure and reactivity of [TmBut]ZnH, a monomeric terminal zinc hydride compound in a sulfur-rich coordination environment: access to a heterobimetallic compound

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first terminal zinc hydride complex that features a sulfur-rich coordination environment, namely the tris(2-mercapto-1-tert-butylimidazolyl)hydroborato compound, [TmBut]ZnH, has been synthesized via the reaction of [TmBut]ZnOPh with PhSiH3. The Zn–H bond of [TmBut]ZnH is subject to insertion of CO2 and facile protolytic cleavage, of which the latter provides access to heterobimetallic [TmBut]ZnMo(CO)3Cp.
