Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Rock 'n' roll cyaphide: Although the kinetic product B is an observable intermediate of nucleophilic attack on the low-coordinate phosphorus atom in A, it is not directly involved in the mechanism leading to cyaphide complex F. Instead, DFT calculations suggest that nucleophilic attack at silicon (→C) initiates decomposition via D to F. In contrast to cyanide complexes, isocyaphide E is only a transition state for C≡P-ligand rotation D⇌D′. © 2007 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
