Rhodium(I) iminophosphine poly(propyleneimine) dendrimers: Synthesis, characterization and molecular structure of a mononuclear analogue

Antonels, Nathan C. ; Therrien, Bruno ; Moss, John R. ; Smith, Gregory S.

In: Inorganic Chemistry Communications, 2009, vol. 12, no. 8, p. 716-719

First (G1)- and second-generation (G2) poly(propyleneimine) (PPI) dendrimers were reacted with 2-(diphenylphosphino)benzaldehyde, to form iminophosphine-functionalised dendritic ligands (1, 2). The reaction of the dimeric precursor [RhCl(CO)2]2 with the heterobidentate dendritic ligands 1, 2 gave the corresponding rhodium(I)...

The Adaptable Coordination Chemistry of 6-Chloro-2-(quinolin-2-yl)-2,4-dihydro-1H-benzo[d][1,3]oxazine Towards Zinc(II) and Mercury(II)

Attilio Ardizzoia, G. ; Brenna, Stefano ; Therrien, Bruno

In: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, 2010, vol. 2010, no. 21, p. 3365-3371

The coordination chemistry of 6-chloro-2-(quinolin-2-yl)-2,4-dihydro-1H-benzo[d][1,3]oxazine (LH2) towards zinc and mercury has been explored. The ligand exhibits high versatility and provides different environments to the metal centre as a function of its diverse coordination modes. In one of the isolated and characterized complexes,...
