3, 5-Di-substitued Cyano-Scorpionate Ligand

Ruth Aanuoluwapo Adeyemi, Arielle Pompilius


Polypyrazolylborates are popular ligands in inorganic chemistry, largely due to the relative ease with which one can synthesize the ligands with a variety of different substituents, giving rise to ligands with desired steric and electronic properties. Reported here are the improved syntheses of 4-cyano-3,5-bisphenyl pyrazole and the corresponding ligand potassium bis(4-cyano-3,5-diphenylpyrazolyl)borate, which will expand the potential of the scorpionate ligand chemistry.
