Title: Piano-stool lutetium amido and imido compounds supported by a constrained bis(oxazoline)cyclopentadienyl ligand

{Bo MCp tet}Lu(CH 2Ph) 2 ( 1; Bo MCp tet = MeC(Ox Me2 2C 5Me 4; Ox Me2 = 4,4-dimethyl-2-oxazoline) was prepared in 95% yield from the reaction of Bo MCp tetH and Lu(CH 2Ph) 3THF 3. Compound 1 reacts with 1 or 2 equiv of H 2NCH 2R (R = C 6H 5, 1-C 10H 7) to give the corresponding imido complexes [{Bo MCp tet}LuNCH 2R] 2 (R = C 6H 5 ( 2a), 1-C 10H 7 ( 2b)) or amido complexes {Bo MCp tet}Lu(NHCH 2R) 2 (R = C 6H 5 ( 3a), 1-C 10H 7 ( 3b)). When isolated, the imido species are insoluble in nonprotic organic solvents. Crystallographic characterization reveals dimeric [{Bo MCp tet}LuNCH 2(1-C 10H 7)] 2 in the solid state. The reaction of 1 and NH3B(C6F5)3 affords crystallographically characterized {Bo MCp tet}Lu{NHB(C 6F 5) 2}C 6F 5. This species is proposed to form via a transient lutetium imido, which undergoes C6F5 migration to the lutetium center.
