Reduction of indium boryl precursors to give two- and three-dimensional M-M bonded networks is influenced by the choice of supporting ligand. An unprecedented nanoscale cluster

[In68(boryl)12]-, with an In12@In44@In12(boryl)12 concentric structure, can be isolated from the potassium reduction of a bis(boryl)indium(III) chloride precursor.

Structural snapshots of concerted double E-H bond activation at a transition metal centre

J.A.B. Abdalla, A. Caise, R. Tirfoin, A.L. Thompson, A.J. Edwards, S. Aldridge

Nature Chem., 2017, in press (DOI: 10.1038/nchem.2792)

Combined experimental and computational approaches yield structural snapshots of the simultaneous activation of both bonds of an EH2 unit at a single metal center. X-ray/neutron diffraction are exploited to allow structural visualization of the activation process, from a sigma-complex showing little E-H bond activation, through species of intermediate geometry featuring stretched E-H and compressed M-H/M-E bonds, to a fully activated metal carbenoid dihydride.
