Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of four new unsymmetrical β-diketiminate tris(dimethylamido)hafnium(IV) complexes, [2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(phenyl)imino-2-pentene]tris(dimethylamido)hafnium(IV) (5a), [2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(4-methylphenyl)imino-2-pentene]tris(dimethylamido)hafnium(IV) (5b), [2-(2,6-diisopropyl-phenyl)amino-4-(4-methoxyphenyl)imino-2-pentene]tris(dimethylamido)hafnium(IV) (5c), and [2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(4-chlorophenyl)imino-2-pentene]tris(dimethylamido)hafnium(IV) (5d), are described. Amine elimination reactions work well for introducing unsymmetrical β-diketiminates2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(phenyl)imino-2-pentene (4a), 2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(4-methylphenyl)imino-2-pentene (4b), 2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(4-methoxyphenyl)imino-2-pentene (4c), and 2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)amino-4-(4-chlorophenyl)imino-2-pentene (4d) to the tetrakis(dimethylamino)hafnium centre. We discuss the synthetic procedures and characterization using 1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR, mass spectroscopy, and elemental analysis. According to the IR and NMR spectra, unsymmetrical β-diketiminate ligands are bidentate, coordinating through two nitrogens to hafnium.
