New reactivity and synthesis of titanium imide complexes
This Thesis reports the synthesis and reactivity of titanium imide complexes. The dehydrocoupling of amines with boranes was studied as novel catalytic application of transition metal imides. A particular focus lies on the mechanism of the dehydrocoupling of dimethylamine-borane (DMAB). Additionally, synthetic routes to novel titanium borylimides were explored, as well as their reactivity in the activation of small molecules.
Chapter Two describes the dehydrogenative coupling...Expand abstract
