Abstract

The synthesis of the Cu-borate complexes[(6Mes)Cu(HBR3)] featuring the unusual [HBEt3](5) and[HB(C6F5)3](6) ligands is described. Experimental andcomputational studies show both compounds feature a directCu–H interaction, but that while 5 is two-coordinate, 6 displaysan additional, stabilizing Cu–Cipso(C6F5) interaction.
