Reductive linear- and cyclo-trimerization of isocyanides by an Al-Al-bonded compound

Abstract

Dialumane 1 reacts with tBuNC to give the reductive dimerization adduct [LAl (tBuN=C−C=NtBu)AlL] (2). In the presence of Na, 1 can promote linear- and cyclo-trimerization of the isocyanide, affording products [Na][LAl{(tBuNC)3}AlL] (3 and 4) and [Na][LAl(tBuNC)3}Al(C-N)L] (5), the latter of which features a unique aromatic tri(tert-butylimino)deltate dianion [C3N3(tBu)3]2-.
