    Hydrogen-Bonded Chains and Networks of Triptycene-Based Triboronic Acid and Tripyridinone

    No full text
    The synthesis of 2,7,14-triptycene triboronic acid <b>1</b> and triptycene tripyridinone <b>2</b>, as well as their packings in the crystalline states, was studied. Both compounds show pronounced aggregation by hydrogen bonding, thus forming supramolecular polymeric chains or interpenetrated networks depending on the solvent mixtures used for crystallization. In all examples, two of the three hydrogen bonding motifs in each molecule formed cyclic dimers, leaving the third site either masked by solvents or for the formation of another hydrogen bond with the dimeric units. The influence of the solvent is discussed

    No full text
    A high-yielding synthesis of a rigid hexaketone is presented that can be transformed into ŌÄ-extended <i>D</i><sub>3<i>h</i></sub>-symmetric triptycene derivatives with high internal molecular free volumes (IMFVs). The products show excellent photophysical properties combined with high specific surface areas

    1,2-Bis(di-<i>tert</i>-butylphosphino)imidazole (<b>dtbpi</b>): A Versatile Imidazole-Based, Rigid, Bulky Bisphosphine Ligand for Transition Metals

    No full text
    A bulky bisphosphine, 1,2-bis¬≠(di-<i>tert</i>-butylphosphino)¬≠imidazole (<b>dtbpi</b>), featuring a rigid imidazole backbone, was synthesized in a simple two-step procedure. The ligand‚Äôs coordination chemistry and electron-donating abilities were investigated in the complexes (<b>dtbpi</b>)¬≠Ni¬≠(FDN) (<b>3</b>) and [(<b>dtbpi</b>)¬≠Rh¬≠(CO)<sub>2</sub>]¬≠BF<sub>4</sub> (<b>4</b>). Protonation of <b>4</b> at the ligand backbone‚Äôs nitrogen with strong Br√łnsted acids such as HBF<sub>4</sub> and HBAr<sub>F</sub> gave the dicationic dicarbonyl complexes [(<b>H-dtbpi</b><sup><b>+</b></sup>)¬≠Rh¬≠(CO)<sub>2</sub>]¬≠(BF<sub>4</sub>)¬≠(BAr<sub>F</sub>) (<b>5a</b>) and [(<b>H-dtbpi</b><sup><b>+</b></sup>)¬≠Rh¬≠(CO)<sub>2</sub>]¬≠(BF<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub> (<b>5b</b>), which served as model complexes of the ligand‚Äôs imidazolium-phosphine form and permitted characterization of its donating character. In order to evaluate solely the different electronic characters of the two isosteric P donors, the complexes (<b>dtbpi</b>)¬≠PdCl¬≠(Me) (<b>6</b>) and [(<b>dtbpi</b>)¬≠RhCl]<sub>2</sub> (<b>7</b>) were synthesized. An unexpected rearrangement of one of the formed stereoisomers of <b>6</b>, with cleavage of an N‚ÄďP bond, was found. A novel phosphine-phosphonium ylide ligand (<b>8</b>) has been made accessible via chemoselective alkylation of the carbon-bound P donor of <b>dtbpi</b> to yield the phosphonium salt [<i>P</i>-CH<sub>3</sub>-dtbpi]¬≠BF<sub>4</sub> (<b>2</b>). The ylide <b>8</b> was generated in situ by deprotonation of <b>2</b> with KHMDS. Its coordination to the PdCl¬≠(Me) fragment led to the isolation of exclusively the <i>Z</i> isomer of [(<b>8</b>)¬≠PdCl¬≠(Me)] (<b><i>Z</i>-9</b>). X-ray structure analysis of [(<b>dtbpi</b>)¬≠Rh¬≠(NBD)]¬≠BF<sub>4</sub> (<b>10</b>) and its dicationic analogue [(<b>H-dtbpi</b><sup><b>+</b></sup>)¬≠Rh¬≠(NBD)]¬≠(BF<sub>4</sub>)¬≠(BAr<sub>F</sub>) (<b>11</b>) revealed the structural changes provoked upon ligand backbone protonation

    An Oxidative Macrobicyclic Ring Opening of a Triptycene to a Highly Functionalized Fluorene Derivative

    No full text
    The treatment of hexamethoxytriptycenes with nitric acid leads to an unprecedented oxidative ring opening of the triptycene scaffold, resulting in a new class of fluorene derivatives with a nitroquinone unit. Preliminary investigations of the influence of chain length of alkyl substituents at the triptycene bridgeheads to the reaction have been performed, revealing that exclusively the methyl-substituted hexamethoxytriptycene does not undergo an oxidative ring opening reaction

    Stepwise Deprotonation of a Thiol-Functionalized Bis(1,2,4-triazolium) Salt as a Selective Route to Heterometallic NHC Complexes

    No full text
    Heterometallic NHC complexes have been selectively prepared at room temperature directly from an azolium salt in a two-step procedure. In the unsymmetrically substituted bis¬≠(1,2,4-triazolium) ligand precursor, one of the <i>m</i>-xylylene-bridged triazolium units features an unprotected <i>o</i>-thiophenol substituent. This renders possible a selective deprotonation and in situ monopalladation at the NHC‚Äďthiolato unit. The obtained palladium¬≠(II) complex possesses two pendant triazolium units as vacant binding sites. After a second deprotonation/metalation step, a heterodinuclear palladium¬≠(II) gold¬≠(I) complex and a heterotrinuclear palladium¬≠(II) dicopper¬≠(I) complex were obtained. In the latter, two metal centers are connected via a thiolato bridge

    Efficient One-Pot Synthesis of Unsymmetrical Gold(I) N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes and Their Use as Catalysts

    No full text
    Eleven different gold­(I) complexes of new NHC ligands were prepared in excellent yield, demonstrating the versatility of the new route to NHC complexes. While the influence of electronically different ligands on the synthesis of the catalysts was small, the catalytic activities of the products differed significantly

    Saturated Abnormal NHC‚ÄďGold(I) Complexes: Synthesis and Catalytic Activity

    No full text
    New saturated abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene complexes of gold¬≠(I) have been prepared by a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of an in situ generated azomethine ylide with an isocyanogold¬≠(I) choride. A series of different substituents on the nitrogen atom of the 1,3-dipole are tolerated without problem. Substitutents on a carbon atom of the 1,3-dipole are problematic in the case of the isocyanogold¬≠(I) chlorides; only low yields are obtained. However, the corresponding isocyanogold¬≠(I) iodide shows good reactivity, and these abnormal N-heterocyclic carbenes bear the substituent in a position őĪ to the carbene carbon, as proven by a crystal structure analysis of one of the products. Some of the new saturated abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene complexes were then tested in the gold-catalyzed phenol synthesis; moderate turnover numbers of 252‚Äď380 could be reached
