Summary of "Bis-boranes in the frustrated Lewis pair activation of carbon dioxide."

Using a frustrated Lewis pair approach, the 1,1-bis-(C(6)F(5))(2)BOB(C(6)F(5))(2) is shown to bind CO(2) in a monodentate fashion, while the bis-boranes (X(2)B)(2)C[double bond, length as m-dash]CMe(2) (X = Cl, C(6)F(5)) give bidentate chelation of CO(2) affording unique heterocycles.

A unified survey of Si-H and H-H bond activation catalysed by electron-deficient boranes.

The bond activation chemistry of B(C6F5)3 and related electron-deficient boranes is currently experiencing a renaissance due to the fascinating development of frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs). B(C6F5)3's...

Direct observation of a borane-silane complex involved in frustrated Lewis-pair-mediated hydrosilylations.

Perfluorarylborane Lewis acids catalyse the addition of silicon-hydrogen bonds across C=C, C=N and C=O double bonds. This 'metal-free' hydrosilylation has been proposed to occur via borane activation ...

Intramolecular Frustrated Lewis Pair with the Smallest Boryl Site: Reversible H2 Addition and Kinetic Analysis.

Ansa-aminoborane 1 (ortho-TMPC6 H4 BH2 ; TMP=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperid-1-yl), a frustrated Lewis pair with the smallest possible Lewis acidic boryl site (BH2 ), is prepared. Although it is p...

Metal-Organic Frameworks with Precisely Designed Interior for Carbon Dioxide Capture in the Presence of Water.

The selective capture of carbon dioxide in the presence of water is an outstanding challenge. Here, we show that the interior of IRMOF-74-III can be covalently functionalized with primary amine (IRMOF...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enzyme with high affinity for carbon dioxide. It catalyzes irreversibly the formation of oxaloacetate from phosphoenolpyruvate and carbon dioxide. This fixation of carbon dioxide in several bacteria and some plants is the first step in the biosynthesis of glucose. EC

Any chemical species which accepts an electron-pair from a LEWIS BASE in a chemical bonding reaction.

Any chemical species which acts as an electron-pair donor in a chemical bonding reaction with a LEWIS ACID.

A family of zinc-containing enzymes that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. They play an important role in the transport of CARBON DIOXIDE from the tissues to the LUNG. EC

The collective name for the boron hydrides, which are analogous to the alkanes and silanes. Numerous boranes are known. Some have high calorific values and are used in high-energy fuels. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
