Reactivity of Cp*M (M = Co, Rh, Ir) half-sandwich complexes containing a chelating 1,2-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane-1,2-dichalcogenolato ligand with organic azides

Full Articles


The reactivity of unsaturated 16-electron half-sandwich complexes Cp*M(S2C2B10H10) (Cp* is pentamethylcyclopentadienyl, M = Co, Rh, Ir) towards various organic azides was studied. The difference in the metal center and organic azides led to products with different coordination modes, which were characterized by 1H, 11B, and 13C NMR spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, and X-ray diffraction.
