Isocyanate and carbodiimide synthesis by nitrene-group-transfer from a nickel(II) imido complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

The imido complex (dtbpe)Ni{N(2,6-(CHMe2)2C6H3)} reacts with CO and CNCH2Ph with addition at the Ni–N bond to give (dtbpe)Ni{C,N2-C(O)N(2,6-(CHMe2)2C6H3)} and (dtbpe)Ni{C,N2-C(NCH2Ph)N(2,6-(CHMe2)2C6H3)}; both complexes react further with CO to liberate the isocyanate and carbodiimide ligands with formation of (dtbpe)Ni(CO)2.
