Synthesis and reactivity of transition metal complexes containing halogenated boryl ligands
- The synthesis and characterization of iron and manganese complexes containing the tetrachlorocatecholboryl (BO2C6Cl4) ligand are reported. Crystallographic study of the methylcyclopentadienyl derivative and reveals that the relative orientation of (η5-C5H4Me)Fe(CO)2 and BO2C6Cl4 moieties is influenced by intramolecular C-H(triple dot sign)O hydrogen bonding. Additionally, an alternative route to catecholboryl complexes from dilithiocatechol is reported. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
