Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Soft (S-3-donor) scorpionate complexes of molybdenum and tungsten carbonyls

Abstract

The dicarbonyl(eta (3)-allyl)molybdenum and tri-carbonyliodotungsten complexes with hydrotris(methimazolyl)borate (Tm) are reported as the first examples of transition-metal organometallic complexes of the Tm ligand, serving as general entry points for a wide range of group 6 organometallic complexes. Their crystal structures have been determined, and comparisons are made with the homologous pyrazolylborate (Tp) and cyclopentadienyl (Cp) complexes, leading to predictions regarding their reactions.
