Abstract
The reaction of [CpnMCl4-x] (M=V: n=2, x=2; M=Nb: n=1, x=0; Cp=η5-C5H5) with LiBH4·THF followed by thermolysis in the presence of dichalcogenide ligands E2R2 (E=S, Te; R=2,6-(tBu) 2-C6H2OH, Ph) and 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (C7H5NS2) yielded dimetallaheteroboranes [{CpV(μ-TePh)}2(μ3-Te)BH·thf] (1), [(CpV)2(BH3S)2] (2), [(CpNb)2B 4H10S] (3), [(CpNb)2B4H 11S(tBu)2C6H2OH] (4), and [(CpNb)2B4H11TePh] (5). In cluster 1, the V2BTe atoms define a tetrahedral framework in which the boron atom is linked to a THF molecule. Compound 2 can be described as a dimetallathiaborane that is built from two edge-fused V2BS tetrahedron clusters. Cluster 3 can be considered as an edge-fused cluster in which a trigonal-bipyramidal unit (Nb2B2S) has been fused with a tetrahedral core (Nb2B2) by means of a common Nb2 edge. In addition, thermolysis of an in-situ-generated intermediate that was produced from the reaction of [Cp2VCl2] and LiBH 4·THF with excess BH3·THF yielded oxavanadaborane [(CpV)2B3H8(μ3- OEt)] (6) and divanadaborane cluster [(CpV)2B5H 11] (7). Cluster 7 exhibits a nido geometry with C2v symmetry and it is isostructural with [(Cp*M)2B 5H9+n] (M=Cr, Mo, and W, n=0; M=Ta, n=2; Cp*=η5-C5Me5). All of these new compounds have been characterized by 1H NMR, 11B NMR, and 13C NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis and the structural types were established unequivocally by crystallographic analysis of compounds 1-4, 6, and 7. Group 5 alive: Divanadatellura- and divanadathiaboranes were obtained from the treatment of Group 5 metal polychlorides with dichalcogenides and monoboranes. The treatment of [Cp2VCl2] with monoboranes yielded an oxavanadaborane and a divanadaborane (see structures). Copyright © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
