Abstract Vaska’s complex, Ir(Cl)[P(C6H5)3]2(CO), reacts with O2 at room temperature to form Ir(Cl)[P(C6H5)3]2(CO)(O2) at a ratio of 3.11:1 reactant to product and with HCl to form Ir(Cl)2[P(C6H5)3]2(CO)H at 47.7% yield. The CO stretch on the IR spectra of these compounds is found at a lower frequency than . . .

Abstract The reaction of RuCl2(PPh3)2, THF, and diphenylpropargyl alcohol under reflux yields C51H40P2Cl2Ru in 46% yield. 1H NMR spectroscopy of C51H40P2Cl2Ru shows a series of overlapping peaks at δ 7.3-7.8. C51H40P2Cl2Ru can then react with dichloromethane and tricyclohexylphosphine to form C51H76Cl2P2Ru. . . .
Synthesis and Determination of [1,3,5-C6H3(CH3)3]Mo(CO)3 Abstract The reaction of mesitylene with Mo(CO)6 under reflux yields [1,3,5-C6H3(CH3)3]Mo(CO)3 in low percent yield (around 1%). 1H NMR of [1,3,5-C6H3(CH3)3]Mo(CO)3 shows singlets at δ 2.25 and 5.23 with absorption ratios of 9:3, respectively. 1H . . .
Synthesis and Determination of Polypyrazolylborates: K[HB(3,5-C5H7N2)3] and HB(3,5-C5H7N2)3Cu(CO) Abstract The reaction of KBH4 heated with 3,5-dimethylpyrazole produces potassium tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazolyl)hydroborate at an unknown percent yield. 1H NMR spectroscopy of K[HB(3,5-C5H7N2)3] shows . . .
Tinkering with Tin: Synthesis of SnCl(CH2C6H5)3 and SnCl4[OS(CH3)2]2 Abstract The reaction of tin with benzyl chloride under reflux yields SnCl(CH2C6H5)3 in low percent yield (around 15%) due to various factors. 1H NMR of SnCl(CH2C6H5)3 shows a singlet at δ 3.15 with satellites containing coupling . . .
