Cui, Jingjing, Dietz, Maximilian, Härterich, Marcel, Fantuzzi, Felipe, Lu, Wei, Dewhurst, Rian D., Braunschweig, Holger (2021) Diphosphino-Functionalized 1,8-Naphthyridines: a Multifaceted Ligand Platform for Boranes and Diboranes. Chemistry - A European Journal, 27 (63). pp. 15751-15756. ISSN 0947-6539. E-ISSN 1521-3765. (doi:10.1002/chem.202102721) (KAR id:96295)


A 1,8-naphthyridine diphosphine (NDP) reacts with boron-containing Lewis acids to generate complexes featuring a number of different naphthyridine bonding modes. When exposed to diborane B2Br4, NDP underwent self-deprotonation to afford [NDP-B2Br3]Br, an unsymmetrical diborane comprised of four fused rings. The reaction of two equivalents of monoborane BBr3 and NDP in a non-polar solvent provided the simple phosphine-borane adduct [NDP(BBr3)2], which then underwent intramolecular halide abstraction to furnish the salt [NDP-BBr2][BBr4], featuring a different coordination mode from that of [NDP-B2Br3]Br. Direct deprotonation of NDP by KHMDS or PhCH2K generates mono- and dipotassium reagents, respectively. The monopotassium reagent reacts with one or half an equivalent of B2(NMe2)2Cl2 to afford NDP-based diboranes with three or four amino substituents.
