Reactions of As(NMe2)3 and Sb(NMe2)3 with aluminum and magnesium alkylating agents

Academic Article


  • The reactions of aluminum alkyls, R3Al (R Me, Et, Prn, Bun and Bui, with As(NMe23 and Sb(NMe2)3 have been used to synthesize the respective tertiary arsines, R3As, and tertiary stibines, R3Sb, in good yields. As(NMe2)3 also reacts with Grignard reagents RMgX (R Et, Prn, Pri, Bun, Bui, But, Ch2CH, CH3CHCH, Me3SiCH2, Ph, p-tolyl and mesityl), to give R3As. Complete 13C and 1H NMR spectral data on the synthesized R3Sb and [R2AlNMe2]2 are also reported. © 1993.
