Synthesis and Characterization of a Tripodal Tris(nitroxide) Aluminum Complex and Its Catalytic Activity toward Carbonyl Hydroboration
An aluminum complex of a tripodal tris(nitroxide)-based ligand has been prepared and characterized. The complex has the ability to participate in metal–ligand cooperative catalysis, which has been exploited for the hydroboration of both aldehydes and ketones. This represents new, transition-metal-like reactivity for an earth-abundant metal.
