Exploring the reactivity patterns of cationic and neutral rhodium bis-phosphine species with amine-boranes
This thesis details the synthesis of novel Rh(I) and Rh(III) bis-phosphine fragments, and their use, along with other known rhodium species, to investigate the reactivity of amine-boranes, with a particular focus on the dehydrocoupling of the secondary amine-borane H3B.NMe2H (DMAB).
Chapter 2 utilises the new mixed phosphine, PtBuiBu2, to investigate the role of the phosphine with regard to the corresponding low-coordinate organometallic species isolated. Their coordination and reac...Expand abstract
