Title: Exploiting the Potentiality of High Valent Transition Metal Halides in Organic Synthesis
High oxidation state transition metal halides can promote unusual activation of a variety of organic substrates, affording organic products which can be difficult to obtain by conventional organic synthesis. The reactivity of WCl6 and niobium and tantalum pentahalides with redox non-innocent organic compounds (e.g. α-diimines, α-ketoimines and α-dicarbonyls) will be the subject of this investigation.
