Reactivity of a Cl-boratabenzene Pt(II) complex with Lewis bases: generation of the kinetically favoured Cl-boratabenzene anion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Complex [(IMes)2Pt(H)(ClBC5H4SiMe3)] (IMes = 1,3-di(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene) reacts with Lewis bases (L = pyridine, trimethylphosphine, acetonitrile, tert-butylisocyanide) to generate the kinetically favoured ion pairs [(IMes)2Pt(H)(L)][ClBC5H4SiMe3]. Over time, the formation of the thermodynamically favoured borabenzene-L adducts is observed with L = pyridine and trimethylphosphine.
