A mechanistical study on reduction reactions of group 15 compounds with low valent group 13 organyls

  • Syntheses and reactivity studies of group 13/15 compounds by using sterically demanding ligands
  • Characterization of the compounds by using NMR and IR spectroscopy as well as single crystal x-ray diffractometry
  • Performance of quantum chemical calculations to generate an impression of the electronic properties and comparison with the experimental data
  • Investigations to understand the reaction mechanism via in situ NMR spectroscopy
