Chemistry. 2016 Nov 3. doi: 10.1002/chem.201604495. [Epub ahead of print]We have synthesized and characterized the monomeric diiminophosphinate-stabilized Group 13 metal(I) complexes [Dip LE:], Dip L=Ph2 P(NDip)2 , Dip=2,6-iPr2 C6 H3 ; E=Ga (1), In (2) and Tl (3). In addition, we structurally characterized the dimeric complex [(Dip LGa)2 ], 12 . Similar synthetic attempts using Mes L=Ph2 P(NMes)2 , Mes=2,4,6-Me3 C6 H2 afforded product mixtures from which the mixed oxidation state species [(Mes L)3 Ga4 I3 ] 4 was isolated. Read More
