Synthesis of a Dinuclear Europium (III) Complex through Deprotonation and Oxygen-Atom Transfer of Trimethylamine N-Oxide

Abstract

Dinuclear Eu (III) complex Eu2(OCH2NMe2)2[N(SiMe3)2]4 (1) was sysnthesized via the reaction of Me3NO and Eu[N(SiMe3)2]3, during which an unprecedented C-H activation of Me3NO occurred along with oxygen-atom transfer. A simple Eu[N(SiMe3)2]3(OPMe3) adduct (2) was obtained when Me3PO was used, which should be due to the higher energy barrier and poorer product stability that prevents the formation of the phosphine substituted analog of 1.
