Anion and neutral molecule recognition by electron deficient boranes

Abstract:

This thesis reports on the synthesis of a series of Lewis acidic boranes used as detectors for the cyanide or fluoride ion, and for the activation of molecular oxygen.

Chapter III focuses on the formation of monodentate boranes featuring a pendant ferrocenyl moiety. A systematic study of the fluoride and cyanide binding capabilities of isomeric ferrocenyl-functionalized phenyl boranes was conducted via spectroscopic, crystallographic and voltammetric techniques. The synthes...
