Reactive Coordinatively Saturated Mo(III) Complex: Exploiting the Adaptive Hapticity of Tris(tert-butoxy)silanolate Ligands

Abstract

Coordinatively unsaturated Mo(III) complexes have been identified as highly reactive species able to activate dinitrogen without the need of a sacrificial reducing agent. Here, we report a coordinatively saturated octahedral Mo(III) complex stabilized by 2-tris(tert-butoxy)silanolate ligands, which is yet highly reactive towards dinitrogen and small molecules. The combined high stability and activity is ascribed to the dual binding mode of the tris(tert-butoxy)silanolate ligands that allows unlocking a coordination site in presence of reactive small molecules to promote their activation at low temperatures
