A study of lithium diamidodihydridoaluminates



The data set contains five files relating to research carried out in connection with the EPSRC responsive mode grant EP/N011384/1 (investigators E. Hevia and R. E. Mulvey) and also a DTP award to Victoria Pollard.

In this research new lithium aluminates are synthesised and then exploited in catalytic hydroboration of carbonyl compounds (aldehydes and ketones). Having both hydride and amido ligands, the new aluminates are also shown to be useful for metallating triazole substrates.

2. NMR data (zip file)
3. X-ray Crystallographic information file (zip file)
4. CIFcheck (for X-ray crystallographic data)
5. InfraRed Data (zip file)

Note that the NMR data in file 2 contains raw data which requires a specialist program such as Topspin or Mestrelab to view; file 3 requires a program such as Mercury or Diamond; and file 5 requires Microsoft Excel or Origin.
