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

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.

Frustrated Lewis Pair mediated 1,2-hydrocarbation of alkynes.

Frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) chemistry enables a rare example of alkyne 1,2-hydrocarbation to be achieved using N-Me-acridinium salts as the carbon Lewis acid. This 1,2-hydrocarbation process does not ...

Dihydrogen Splitting Using Dialkylsilylene-Based Frustrated Lewis Pairs.

An Isolable dialkylsilylene reacts with dihydrogen in the presence of a small amount of a conventional Lewis acid (BPh3, BEt3) or a base (PPh3, PEt3, NPh3, NEt3) at low temperatures in a hydrocarbon s...

Reversible formylborane/SO2 coupling at a frustrated Lewis pair framework.

Carbon monoxide is reduced by HB(C6F5)2 at the Mes2PCH2CH2B(C6F5)2 P/B FLP template to give the respective FLP stabilized (η(2)-formyl)borane product 2. This adds sulfur dioxide by insertion of a SO ...

Designing effective 'frustrated Lewis pair' hydrogenation catalysts.

The past decade has seen the subject of transition metal-free catalytic hydrogenation develop incredibly rapidly, transforming from a largely hypothetical possibility to a well-established field that ...

Reductive Dehydrogenation of a Stannane via Multiple Sn-H Activation by Frustrated Lewis Pairs.

A bulky substituted stannane Ar*SnH3 (Ar*=2,6-(2',4',6'-triisopropylphenyl)phenyl) was treated with the well-known frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) PtBu3 /B(C6 F5 )3 in varying stoichiometries. To some deg...

The Cyclocapnic Method for Measurement of Chemosensitivity

We aim to test our method for measuring chemosensitivity (the ventilatory response to a change in carbon dioxide), which uses sinusoidal carbon dioxide stimuli. Hypotheses: - Ca...

Carbon Dioxide Insufflation Colonoscopy in IBD Patients

Carbon dioxide insufflation during colonoscopy significantly reduces discomfort (pain, bloating and flatulence) after the procedure. So far, it has not been studied in inflammatory bowel d...

Carbon Dioxide Insufflation on Cerebral Microemboli

The purpose of this study is to determine if blowing carbon dioxide into the surgical field during open-heart surgery to displace retained chest cavity air from the atmosphere will decreas...

Prospective, Non-Randomized Evaluation of Carbon Dioxide Gas as a Contrast Agent in Comparison With Iodinated Contrast in Endovascular Aneurysm Repair

Endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) requires a contrast agent to identify the vascular anatomy and placement of the stent graft. Iodine contrast has traditi...

Cholangiography Using Carbon Dioxide Versus Iodinated Contrast in ERCP

Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is widely used for luminal insufflation during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) of the biliary tract. While frequently observed during routine...

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)
