Abstract:

Rare earth tetrahydroborates RE La, Nd, and Er have been synthesized via the reactions of REOMe3 with diborane in THF and REOMe3 with AlBH43 in the absence of solvent. The major products of these reactions have been identified to be REBH433THF and REBH43, respectively. Electronic, vibrational, and proton magnetic resonance spectra are reported for the various compounds. The covalent bonding of borohydride groups with rare earth ions is discussed. Author
