Brintzinger, Hans-Herbert The displacement of the MeB(C<sub>6</sub>F<sub>5</sub>)<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup> anion from seven different zirconocene methyl cations by neutral Lewis bases, such as dimethylaniline, benzyldimethylamine, and dinbutyl ether, was investigated by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy. Equilibrium constants for reactions with di<sup>n</sup>butyl ether change by factors of less than 5 between the zirconocene contact ion pairs studied, despite substantial steric differences. Rate constants of this displacement reaction, however, change by a factor of more than 105 between Me<sub>2</sub>Si(C<sub>5</sub>H<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>ZrMe+MeB(C<sub>6</sub>F<sub>5</sub>)<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup>, the most "open" complex, and rac-Me<sub>2</sub>Si(2-Me-BzInd)<sub>2</sub>ZrMe+MeB(C<sub>6</sub>F<sub>5</sub>)<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup>, the most highly substituted species studied. Kinetic and stereochemical data indicate that Lewis base−anion exchange proceeds by way of an associative mechanism, which occurs without side change of the zirconium-bound methyl group. DFT calculations support an associative substitution mechanism and propose five-coordinated reaction intermediates with the Lewis base coordinated to the central coordination site. eng Geyer, Armin Geyer, Armin 2002 Schaper, Frank Displacement of H 3 CB(C 6 F 5) 3 - anions from zirconocene methyl cations by neutral ligand molecules : equilibria, kinetics, and mechanisms terms-of-use Organometallics ; 21 (2002), 3. - S. 473-483 2013-06-24T17:08:24Z Schaper, Frank 2013-06-24T17:08:24Z Brintzinger, Hans-Herbert
