Cyclopropanation and Isomerization Reactions of β-Diketiminato Boron Complexes

By Liang Xie (111669), Hongfan Hu (1791835) and Chunming Cui (1446892)


The reaction of HC­[(CBu<sup><i>t</i></sup>)­(NAr)]<sub>2</sub>Li with BCl<sub>3</sub> yielded the azaallyl boron dichloride [ArNC­(Bu<sup><i>t</i></sup>)­C­(H)­C­(Bu<sup><i>t</i></sup>)­N­(Ar)]­BCl<sub>2</sub> (<b>1</b>), which can be converted to the β-diketiminato boron dichloride HC­[(CBu<sup><i>t</i></sup>)­(NAr)]<sub>2</sub>BCl<sub>2</sub> (<b>2</b>) upon heating at 40 °C. Reaction of <b>1</b> with the bulky lithium salts LiN­(SiMe<sub>3</sub>)<sub>2</sub> and MesLi (Mes = 2,4,6-Me<sub>3</sub>C<sub>6</sub>H<sub>2</sub>) resulted in the cyclopropanation of the CBu<sup><i>t</i></sup> group via the deprotonation of the methyl group, while reactions with PhLi and LiNEt<sub>2</sub> gave substitution products
