Mendoza-Espinosa, D.; Donnadieu, B.; Bertrand, G. Facile Preparation of Heterobimetallic Complexes with a 4-Phosphine Substituted NHC Ligand. Toward the Design of Multifunctional Catalysts. Chem. Asian J. 2011, 6, 1099-1103.
A series of bimetallic complexes have been synthesized that are supported by a 4?phosphino?substituted NHC ligand. The use of this stable ligand reduces the number of synthetic steps and allows for a wide range of metal combinations to be introduced into the complexes.
