Abstract

A comparison of Rh and Ir complexes of the SiNN ligand (combining Si-H, amido, and quinoline donors) reveals its great degree of adaptability. The amido donor can function as a boryl group acceptor, and the Si-H/metal interaction is highly variable. In contrast to Ir analogues, complexes of Rh do not catalyze dehydrogenative borylation of terminal alkynes but do act as modest benzene borylation catalysts.
