||The novel chelating ligand, Me[NOON]H2 (N,N'-((ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy))-bis(ethane-2,1-diyl))- bis(2,6-dimethylaniline)), have been synthesized successfully|
and characterized by NMR. The lithium complexes of the aryl diamide ligand have also been synthesized by n-BuLi react with neutral ligand, Me[NOON]H2. And the
lithium complexes is a ether adduct according to the 1H NMR. The lithium complex, Me[NOON]Li2(OEt2) react with Ti(OiPr)4 and TiCl4(THF)2 to form the NOON titanium alkoxide and dichloride complexes respectively, and they have been characterized by
1H NMR and X-ray diffraction. These NOON titanium complexes are expected to be a catalyst for the ring opening polymerization of lactide or caprolactone in the future.
The tantalum complexes of diphenolate phosphine ligands have been synthesized and characterized successfully by NMR, X-ray diffraction, and elemental analysis. The tantalum complexes, [tBuOPO]2TaX (X=Me, Et, H) is produced by the reaction of
[tBuOPO]2TaCl with Grignard reagent (MeMgBr and EtMgCl) and superhydride(LiHBEt3). These tantalum complexes will be applied in dinitrogen activation in the
