New Chemistry With Boron And Aluminum In Pincers

Pincer complexes of late transition metals have been widely used in studies of stoichiometric and catalytic activation of carbon-hydrogen and carbon-heteroatom bonds.  Our group recently demonstrated the impressive potential of Ir pincer complexes in C-H bond borylation of terminal alkynes and arenes.  Studies of transformations that involve metal-boryl intermediates where the boryl group originates from a reagent have led us to consider alternative approaches to bond activation that incorporate boryl (and aluminyl) donors into supporting pincer ligands.  We have discovered that activation C-H and other bonds of heteroatom-containing substrates is possible with unique selectivities relying on the coordination of the heteroatom to the metal-bound boryl donor.  Current efforts are focused on the discovery of new reaction pathways and potential catalytic applications.
