Abstract

Two triazacyclononanes bearing pendant alkenyl groups [1,4, 7- tri(3-butenyl)-1,4, 7- triazacyclononane and 1, 4,7- tri(2-propenyl)- 1,4,7-triazacyclononane] were synthesized. These triazacyclononanes reacted with nickel salts to form dinuclear complexes [(R(3)TACN)Ni(mu-Cl)(3) Ni(R(3)TACN)](+), various salts of which have been structurally characterized. Attempts to perform intramolecular olefin metathesis reactions on the pendant alkenes in these complexes were unsuccessful.
