Title: Crystal structure of bis(1-mesityl-1 H -imidazole-κ N 3 )diphenylboron trifluoromethanesulfonate

Abstract

The solid-state structure of bis(1-mesityl-1 H -imidazole-κ N 3 )diphenylboron trifluoromethanesulfonate, C 36 H 38 BN 4 + ·CF 3 SO 3 or ( Ph 2 B(MesIm) 2 OTf ), is reported. Bis(1-mesityl-1 H -imidazole-κ N 3 )diphenylboron ( Ph 2 B(MesIm) 2 + ) is a bulky ligand that crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pbcn . The asymmetric unit contains one Ph 2 B(MesIm) 2 + cationic ligand and one trifluoromethanesulfonate anion that balances the positive charge of the ligand. The tetrahedral geometry around the boron center is distorted as a result of the steric bulk of the phenyl groups. Weak interactions, such as π–π stacking are present in the crystal structure.
