Abstract / Description of output

A number of new charge-neutral zwitterionic tris(methimazolyl)borate ligands have been synthesized, either by substitution of the dimethylamine group in the adduct (dimethylamine)tris(methimazolyl)borane (1) or by insertion into its B–N(dimethylamine) bond by an unsaturated Lewis base. Two new anionic ligands, (thiocyanato)tris(methimazolyl)borate and (cyano)tris(methimazolyl)borate, have also been accessed by this method.
