Transmetallation between metal-only Lewis pairs: a new rhodium alane complex.


PMID 22990068

Abstract

In this communication, synthesis of a rhodium alane Lewis adduct, [Cp(Me(3)P)(2)Rh→AlCl(3)], is reported. Given that direct synthesis using aluminium trichloride failed, a convenient transmetallation reaction was applied. The new MOLP was analysed by single crystal X-ray diffraction, multinuclear NMR spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations.
