Frustrated Lewis pair chemistry of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur oxides

Author affiliations

Abstract

Frustrated Lewis pairs have been used to activate a variety of small molecules. In this review we focus on the recent chemistry of FLPs with CO2, CO, N2O, NO and SO2. While FLP capture of these small molecule is achieved in all of these cases, subsequent applications of the products include stoichiometric and catalytic reductions of CO2, C–O bond scission of CO and use of FLP–NO radicals in polymerization.
