Main group metal and transition metal complexes containing fluorinated β-diketiminate ligands

The synthesis of fluorinated β‐diketimine LH 1 (L = HC[C(CF3)NC6F5]2) and its reactions with main‐group‐metal and transition‐metal complexes, yielding LAlMe24, LZnEt 5, LCu(C6D6) 6 and LCuCO 7, is reported. 17 were characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy (1H, 13C, 19F), elemental analysis and single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction. The C6F5 substituents strongly reduce the π‐back‐bonding capacity of the β‐diketiminate ligand as was shown for 7 by IR spectroscopy.

Dedicated to Professor Dietmar Stalke on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
