Anyone m0 (M = group 10 metals) complexes have attracted attention as active species for catalytic reactions; However, their molecular structures are rarely determined due to their extremely high reactivity. In particular, the structures of Pt0 The complexes, which would be expected to exhibit a high degree of interactivity, were not identified, and their combinations were almost non-existent.
Professor Hajime Kamio, Professor Hiroyuki Matsuzaka of the Graduate School of Science at Osaka Metropolitan University and CNRS senior researcher Didier Borisseau (University Paul Sabatier-Toulouse III) elucidated the molecular structures of the PT anions.0 complexes for the first time. Their findings have been published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
The key to success is the anionic stability of Pt0 complexes (which are usually unstable due to their electron-donating nature) by the electron-accepting properties of boron compounds.
“Although platinum complexes displaying a variety of catalytic activities have been actively studied, the anionic Pt0 “The complexes have remained a mystery,” said Professor Cameo. “The results of this research not only enable us to elucidate the properties and functions of highly active chemical species, but also provide new guidelines for their creation. It is expected to lead to the development of innovative catalytic reactions mediated by these chemical species.”
