Abstract

original image

iPr tips the scales: Simple introduction of an iPr group to the Cp ligand in titanocene alkyne complexes of the type [Cp′2Ti(η2-Me3SiC2SiMe3)] (Cp′= cyclopentadienyl) gives a highly active catalyst for dimethylamine borane dehydrogenation. In this communication, a detailed study of the scope of this complex and the reaction kinetics is presented.
