Tetrel and pnictogen functionalised propargylidynes

Richard A. Manzano, Anthony F. Hill, Rosemary L. Georgelin

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The reaction of [W(CCCSiMe3)(CO)2(Tp∗)] (Tp∗ = tris(dimethylpyrazolyl)borate) with AgNO3 affords {[W(CCCAg)-(CO)2(Tp∗)][AgNO3]}n while [Hg{CCCW(CO)2(Tp∗)}2] with nBuLi affords [W(CCCLi)(CO)2(Tp∗)]. These anhydrous reagents allow the installation of main group elements (e.g., Si, Sn, Pb, P, As) as propargylidyne termini.
