Diborane heterolysis and P(v) reduction by Ph 3P=O coordination to magnesium

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Reaction of a magnesium diboranate complex with triphenylphosphine oxide provides a terminal magnesium boryl, which is itself a potent reagent for the deoxygenative reduction of Ph 3PO. Computational analysis with density functional theory (DFT) indicates that B-B bond activation results from initial coordination of the P=O bond of the phosphine oxide to magnesium.
