Proton-Induced Change of the Coordination Mode of a Boron Group: Boryl Complexes [Mn(CO)4(PR3)(BH2⋅PMe3)] and Cationic Borane σ Complexes [Mn(CO)4(PR3)(η1-BH3⋅PMe3)]+


  • (PR3=PMe2Ph, PEt3).

Mode change on protonation: New borylmanganese complexes 1 undergo protonation to give cationic borane σ complexes 2. Heterolytic cleavage of the metal-coordinated B[BOND]H bond was observed in the decomposition process of 2.
