Abstract

By sequentially treating the unsaturated carbene IPr [IPr = 1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene] with heavier alkali-metal alkyls NaR or KR (R = CH2SiMe3) and GaR3, novel heteroleptic gallates 1 and 2 were prepared. Incorporating anionic NHC ligands, these bimetallic complexes react selectively with electrophilles to afford neutral abnormal NHC Ga complexes under mild conditions.
