Al–H σ-bond coordination: expanded ring carbene adducts of AlH3 as neutral bi- and tri-functional donor ligands

Author affiliations

Abstract

Thermally robust expanded ring carbene adducts of AlH3 have been synthesized with a view to probing their ligating abilities via Al–H σ-bond coordination. While κ2 binding to the 14-electron [Mo(CO)4] fragment is readily demonstrated, interaction with [Mo(CO)3] results in μ:κ11 and μ:κ22 bridging linkages rather than terminal κ3 binding.
