- 3Phosphorane imide
- 2Bimetallic catalysts
A series of phosphoranimide-supported first-row transition metal clusters were prepared, structurally characterized, and investigated for catalytic hydrogenolysis of carbon-heteroatom bonds. Homoleptic heterocubane clusters, as well as two-dimensional bi- and tetranuclear compounds of manganese,...
Fortuitous characterization of the cationic nickel cluster [Ni4(NPtBu3)4][Li3Br4(Et2O)3] led to the rational syntheses and characterization of the mixed-valence low-coordinate cationic nickel cluster: [Ni4(NPtBu3)4]BPh4 and [Ni4(NPtBu3)4]PF6, and subsequently the preparation of the anionic...
A New Approach to Molecular Hydrodesulfurization Catalysts: Allyl-capped Trialkylphosphoranimide-bridged Late First-row Transition Metal ClustersDownload
A series of new trialkylphosphoranimide allyl-capped clusters [M(ƞ3-allyl)(NPR)3]2, (M = Fe, Co or Ni, R = Et, tBu or Ph) were synthesized. The nickel dimers [Ni(ƞ3-allyl)(NPR3)]2, R = Et, Ph are diamagnetic and have been fully characterized using NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography,...
Bimetallicity is known to provide synergistic effects and improve catalytic performance of monometallic counterparts in a variety of applications. Conventional impregnation methods for supported catalyst preparation do not allow for the control of bimetallic nanoparticle structure or size, which...
Activity, selectivity and stability enhancements often observed in bimetallic catalysts make them an inseparable part of today’s chemical industry. However, it is usually problematic to understand the real interactions resulting in such improvements due to the lack of control over the bimetallic...
Empowering the Base Metals: Rational Design of Homogeneous Catalysts for Hydrotreatment, and Reduction of Organic UnsaturatesDownload
Hydrocarbon-soluble, low-coordinate, phosphoranimide-supported complexes of the base metals (iron, cobalt and nickel) were developed and evaluated for a range of stoichiometric and catalytic bond-forming and bond-breaking transformations. An unprecedented family of tetrametallic clusters of Co(I)...
Mixed-Valence First-Row Metal Clusters for Catalytic Hydrodesulfurization and HydrodeoxygenationDownload
Salt metathesis between CoCl2 and [KNPEt3]n provides a new route to the halide-substituted cobalt phosphoranimide cluster [CoCl(NPEt3)]4. This cluster is a useful precursor for the preparation of alkyl-capped cobalt phosphoranimide complexes. The methylated heterocubane [CoMe(NPEt3)]4 was...
Selective ring opening of naphthenic molecules is a preferred reaction to increase cetane number of fuels, and it should result in products with no loss in molecular weight and longer alkyl side chains. Benzocyclopentane (indan) ring opening was studied under hydrogen atmospheric pressure at 609...
