Abstract:

This report includes DERIVATIVES OF DIALKYL AND DIARYLBORON CYANIDES, by J. J. Bishop 1961. Attempts to purify and characterize the main product of the reaction between di-alpha-napthylborinic acid and hexacyanocobaltic acid were not successful. PREPARATION AND INVESTIGATION OF COMPOUNDS CONTAINING BORON-TO-TRANSITION-METAL BONDS, by R. A. Schunn 1961. Preparation is reported of NaCpFeCO2, where Cp equals picyclopentadienyl. Cp2Fe2CO4 was cleaved with a 6 Na amalgam in tetrahydrofuran a yellow solid was obtained. Solid PCl5 was added to C6H52BOn-C4H9 and fractional distillation of the resultant mixture gave the C6H52BCl as a water-white liquid. The following attempted preparations were not successful CpFeCO2BnC4H92 by reaction of NaCpFeCO2 with n-C4H92BCl CpFeCO2BC6H52 by reaction of NaCpFeCO2 with C6H52BCl in CH320 and CpFeCO2-BC6H52 by reaction of NaCpFeCO2 with C6H52BCl in petroleum ether.
