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.

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)
