Spectroscopic and Structural Study of Some Oligosilanylalkyne Complexes of Cobalt, Molybdenum and Nickel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Metal induced stabilization of α-carbocations is well known for cobalt- and molybdenum complexed propargyl cations. The same principle also allows access to reactivity enhancement of metal coordinated halo- and hydrosilylalkynes. In a previous study, we have shown that coordination of oligosilanylalkynes to the dicobalthexacarbonyl fragment induces striking reactivity to the oligosilanyl part. The current paper extends this set of oligosilanylalkyne complexes to a number of new dicobalthexacarbonyl complexes but also to 1,2-bis(cyclopentadienyl)tetracarbonyldimolybdenum and (dippe)Ni complexes. NMR-Spectroscopic and crystallographic analysis of the obtained complexes clearly show that the dimetallic cobalt and molybdenum complexes cause rehybridization of the alkyne carbon atoms to sp 3 , while in the nickel complexes one π-bond of the alkyne is retained. For the dicobalt and dimolybdenum complexes, strongly deshielded 29 Si NMR resonances of the attached silicon atoms indicate enhanced reactivity, whereas the 29 Si NMR shifts of the respective nickel complexes are similar to that of respective vinylsilanes.
