Side-on or end-on? Rhodium and iridium complexes featuring aminoboranes (R2N[DOUBLE BOND]BH2) as ligands have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Crystallographic measurements show that the ligands—in contrast to isoelectronic alkene donors—bind in an end-on fashion through a bis(σ-borane) binding motif (see structure).
