Sodium Aminodiboranates Na(H3BNR2BH3): Structural and Spectroscopic Studies of Steric and Electronic Substituent Effects

Publication Date Nov 4, 2022

Abstract

We describe the syntheses of a series of sodium aminodiboranate salts, Na(H3B-NR2-BH3), with different substituents on nitrogen, including sodium salts of the unsubstituted aminodiboranate, H3B-NH2-BH3-, and of the N-substituted anions H3B-NRR'-BH3-, where NRR' = NHMe, NHEt, NH(SiMe3), NEt2, N(i-Pr)2, N(SiMe3)2, NMe(i-Pr), NMe(t-Bu), NMe(SiMe3), and the pyrrolidide and piperidide derivatives NC4H8, NC5H10, and NC5H8-cis-2,6-Me2. The compounds have been characterized by 1H and 11B NMR spectroscopy and IR spectroscopy; crystallographic studies have been carried out for the unsolvated N,N-dimethylaminodiboranate salt Na(H3B-NMe2-BH3) and several sodium aminodiboranate salts in which the sodium ions are solvated with ethers (dioxane, diglyme, tetrahydrofuran, and 12-crown-4) or amines (N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine). One of the structures contains a rare example of an ether ligand in which one oxygen atom bridges between two metal ions. General structural and spectroscopic trends as a function of the substituents on nitrogen are discussed.
