New cationic mono-cyclopentadienyl complexes of Co(III) containing mono or bidentate nitrogen donor ligands of general formula [Co(eta (5)-C5H5)(PPh3)L-2][BF4](2) (L = NC-CH3, 2, and NC = Ph, 3) or [Co(eta (5)-C5H5)(PPh3)(L-L)[BF4](2), [L-L = 2,2 ' -bisimidazole (H(2)biim) (4) and dipyridylamine [HN(NC5H5)(2)] (5) have been synthesised by the stoichiometric reaction of the Co(III) complex Co(eta (5)-C5H5)(PPh3)I-2 (1), with Ag[BF4] and the appropriate ligand in CH2Cl2. Under the same conditions and using;trans-azobenzene as a ligand, an orthometalation reaction took placet giving the new compound [Co(eta (5)-C5H5)(PPh3)(kappa -C,kappa -N-C6H4N=NPh)][BF4] (6) in high yield. The structural characterisation of compounds 4 and 6, and of the starting compound Co(eta (5)-C5H5)(PPh3)I-2 (1) was done by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies. DFT calculations (ADF program) were performed in order to understand the orthometallation reaction. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.

{Three new emissive 8-aminoquinoline derived probes (1)-(3) and one dinuclear Zn(II) complex (4) were synthesized and fully characterized. Their absorption spectra show maxima at 310-336 nm, and fluorescence emission between 456 and 498 nm. Compound (1) was characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The effect upon Zn(II) and Cu(II) coordination to compounds (1)-(3) was studied by monitoring the changes in absorption and fluorescence spectra, and complemented by calculation of metal-ligand stability constants. The results indicate that compound (3) is the one that presents the most favorable geometry for coordinating two metal cations, fact that is confirmed by the synthesis of the dinuclear complex (4), with similar molecular geometry.

The phase behaviour of the binary mixture of carbon dioxide and the cobalt complex dicarbonyl(eta(5)-cyclopentadienyl)-cobalt, CPCo(CO)(2), has been investigated. This organometallic compound is one of the most effective catalysts of cyclotrimerization reactions of arylisocyanates and alkynes. Vapour-liquid equilibrium (VLE) measurements were undertaken in a static analytical apparatus at 313.15, 323.15 and 363.15 K at pressures up to 15 MPa. p, T isopleths were measured by a synthetic method in a Cailletet apparatus. Nine different compositions ranging from 17.56 to 94.23 mol% of CO2 were measured up to 15 MPa. Modelling with the Peng-Robinson equation of state (PR EOS) gave reasonable results in the correlation of the experimental phase equilibrium compositions using two temperature-dependent interaction parameters.

"{Controlled ring-opening polymerization of trimethylene carbonate and access to PTMC-PLA block copolymers mediated by well-defined N-heterocyclic carbene zinc alkoxides}." {APPLIED ORGANOMETALLIC CHEMISTRY}. {28} (2014): {504-511}. Abstract

{Four novel Zinc-NHC alkyl/alkoxide/chloride complexes (4, 5, 9 and 9) were readily prepared and fully characterized, including X-ray diffraction crystallography for 5 and 9. The reaction of N-methyl-N-butyl imidazolium chloride (3.HCl) with ZnEt2 (2 equiv.) afforded the corresponding {[}(CNHC)ZnCl(Et)] complex (4) via a protonolysis reaction, as deduced from NMR data. The alcoholysis of 4 with BnOH led to quantitative formation of the dinuclear Zn(II) alkoxide species {[}(CNHC)ZnCl(OBn)]2 (5), as confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis. The NMR data are in agreement with species 5 retaining its dimeric structure in solution at room temperature. The protonolysis reaction of N-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)-N-ethyl methyl ether imidazolium chloride (8.HCl) with ZnEt2 (2 equiv.) yielded the {[}(CNHC)ZnCl(Et)] species 9. The latter was found to be reactive with CH2Cl2 in solution and to cleanly convert to the corresponding Zn(II) dichloride {[}(CNHC)ZnCl2]2 (9), whose molecular structure was also elucidated using X-ray diffractometry. Unlike Zn(II)-NHC alkoxide species 1 and 2, which contain a NHC flanked with an additional N-functional group (i.e. thioether and ether, respectively), the Zn(II) alkoxide species 5 incorporates a monodentate NHC ligand. The Zn(II) complexes 1, 2 and 5 were tested in the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of trimethylene carbonate (TMC). All three species are effective initiators for the controlled ROP of trimethylene carbonate, resulting in the production of narrow disperse PTMC material. Initiator 1 (incorporating a thioether moiety) was found to perform best in the ROP of TMC. Notably, the latter also readily undergoes the sequential ROP of TMC and rac-LA in the presence of a chain-transfer agent, leading to well-defined and high-molecular-weight PTMC/PLA block copolymers.

"{Copper(II) complexes of bis(aryl-imino)acenaphthene ligands: synthesis, structure, DFT studies and evaluation in reverse ATRP of styrene}." {DALTON TRANSACTIONS}. {43} (2014): {13041-13054}. Abstract

{Two new Ar-BIAN Cu(II) complexes (where Ar-BIAN = bis(aryl-imino)acenaphthene) of formulations {[}CuCl2(Mes-BIAN)] (1) (Mes = 2,4,6-Me3C6H2) and {[}CuCl2(Dipp-BIAN)] (2) (Dipp = 2,6-iPr(2)C(6)H(3)) were synthesised by direct reaction of CuCl2 suspended in dichloromethane with the respective ligands Mes-BIAN (L1) and Dipp-BIAN (L2), dissolved in dichloromethane, under an argon atmosphere. Attempts to obtain these compounds by solubilising CuCl2 in methanol and adding a dichloromethane solution of the corresponding ligand, under aerobic conditions, gave also compound 1, but, in the case of L2, the Cu(I) dimer {[}CuCl(Dipp-BIAN)](2) (3) was obtained instead of compound 2. The compounds were fully characterised by elemental analyses, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, FT-IR, H-1 NMR and EPR spectroscopic techniques. The solid-state molecular structures of compounds 1-3 were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction, showing the expected chelation of the Ar-BIAN ligands and two chloride ligands completing the coordination sphere of the Cu(11) centre. In the case of the complex 1, an intermediate coordination geometry around the Cu(II) centre, between square planar and tetrahedral, was revealed, while the complex 2 showed an almost square planar geometry. The structural differences and evaluation of energetic changes were rationalised by DFT calculations. Analysis of the electrochemical behaviour of complexes 1-3 was performed by cyclic voltammetry and the experimental redox potentials for Cu(II)/Cu(I) pairs have been compared with theoretical values calculated by DFT in the gas phase and in dichloromethane and methanol solutions. The complex 1 exhibited good activity in the reverse atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP) of styrene.}

"{P,O-Phosphinophenolate zinc(II) species: synthesis, structure and use in the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactide, epsilon-caprolactone and trimethylene carbonate}." {DALTON TRANSACTIONS}. {44} (2015): {12376-12387}. Abstract

{The P, O-type phosphinophenol proligands (1 center dot H, 2-PPh2-4-Me-6-Me-C6H2OH; 2 center dot H, 2-PPh2-4-Me-6-Bu-t-C6H2OH) readily react with one equiv. of ZnEt2 to afford in high yields the corresponding Zn(II)ethyl dimers of the type {[}(kappa(2)-P, O) Zn-Et](2) (3 and 4) with two mu-O-Ph bridging oxygens connecting the two Zn(II) centers, as determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies in the case of 3. Based on diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY), both species 3 and 4 retain their dimeric structures in solution. The alcoholysis reaction of Zn(II) alkyls 3 and 4 with BnOH led to the high yield formation of the corresponding Zn(II) benzyloxide species {[}(kappa(2)-P, O) Zn-OBn](2) (5 and 6), isolated in a pure form as colorless solids. The centrosymmetric and dimeric nature of Zn(II) alkoxides 5 and 6 in solution was deduced from DOSY NMR experiments and multinuclear NMR data. Though the heteroleptic species 5 is stable in solution, its analogue 6 is instable in CH2Cl2 solution at room temperature to slowly decompose to the corresponding homoleptic species 8 via the transient formation of (kappa(2)-P, O)(2)Zn-2(mu-OBn)(mu-kappa(1):kappa(1)-P, O) (6'). Crystallization of compound 6 led to crystals of 6', as established by XRD analysis. The reaction of ZnEt2 with two equiv. of 1 center dot H and 2 center dot H allowed access to the corresponding homoleptic species of the type {[}Zn(P, O)(2)] (7 and 8). All gathered data are consistent with compound 7 being a dinuclear species in the solid state and in solution. Data for species 8, which bears a sterically demanding P, O-ligand, are consistent with a mononuclear species in solution. The Zn(II) alkoxide species 5 and the {[}Zn(P, O)(2)]-type compounds 7 and 8 were evaluated as initiators of the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactide (LA), epsilon-caprolactone (epsilon-CL) and trimethylene carbonate (TMC). Species 5 is a well-behaved ROP initiator for the homo-, co- and terpolymerization of all three monomers with the production of narrow disperse materials under living and immortal conditions. Though species 7 and 8 are ROP inactive on their own, they readily polymerize LA in the presence of a nucleophile such as BnOH to produce narrow disperse PLA, presumably via an activated-monomer ROP mechanism.}

Fliedel, Christophe, Gilles Schnee, Teresa Aviles, and Samuel Dagorne. "{Group 13 metal (Al, Ga, In, Tl) complexes supported by heteroatom-bonded carbene ligands}." {COORDINATION CHEMISTRY REVIEWS}. {275} (2014): {63-86}. Abstract

{The present contribution comprehensively reviews the synthesis, structural characterization and current applications of group 13 metal complexes supported by heteroatom-bonded carbene ligands. Detailed structural analysis and comparison of the structure/reactivity trends of group 13 metal carbene species constitute the primary purpose of the present contribution. The current use and applications of this class of compounds are also discussed. In general, such adducts have been thoroughly characterized (both in solution or in the solid state) and structural data, frequently supported by theoretical investigations, provided insight into the stability/reactivity of the adducts formed. While essentially dominated by Arduengo-type NHC adducts, N- and P-bonded cyclic and acyclic carbene complexes of Al, Ga and In have also been recently described, including the recent use of ``carbon(0) ligands{''}. In general, recent developments in carbene group 13 species exploit the improved stability of the resulting metal complexes for either the isolation/characterization of unprecedented structural motifs or the production of robust group 13 metal reagents subsequently used for organic substrates functionalization or in catalysis.
