Exploration of the pentacyano-cyclo-pentadienide ion, C5(CN)5-, as a weakly coordinating anion and potential superacid conjugate base. Silylation and protonation

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The reportedly unprotonatable pentacyano-cyclo-pentadienide ion, C5(CN)5−, can be protonated and silylated at the cyano N atom using electrophilic reagents derived from weakly coordinating carborane anions. © 2004 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
