Inorg Chem. 2004 Mar 22;43(6):2213-9.Two tripodal trisimidazolium ligand precursors have been tested in the synthesis of new N-heterocyclic carbene rhodium and iridium complexes. [Tris(3-methylbenzimidazolium-1-yl)]methane sulfate gave products with coordination of the decomposed precursor. [1,1,1-Tris(3-butylimidazolium-1-yl)methyl]ethane trichloride (TIMEH(3)(Bu)) coordinated to the metal in a chelate and bridged-chelate form, depending on the reaction conditions. Read More
