Unsymmetrical β-diketiminate magnesium(I) complexes: syntheses and application in catalytic hydroboration of alkyne, nitrile and carbonyl compounds

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of unsymmetrical β-diketimine coordinated magnesium(I) complexes have been successfully synthesized via reductions of related magnesium(II) halide complexes with a sodium reducing reagent in toluene or n-hexane solution. All the unsymmetrical magnesium(I) complexes prepared have been crystallographically and spectroscopically characterized. It was found, for the first time, that these well-defined unsymmetrical magnesium(I) complexes were highly active pre-catalysts for the hydroboration of alkynes, nitriles, aldehydes and ketones.
