Density Functional Theory Investigation of Heterodinuclear-Catalyzed Hydrostannylation
Molecular dinuclear catalysts potentially offer unique reactivity and selectivity compared to mononuclear transition-metal-ligand catalysts. This talk with showcase our use of density functional theory to understand the reactivity and selectivity of heterodinuclear catalyzed hydrostannylation of alkynes. Specifically, the difference in reactivity and regioselectivity of CuFe (α-stannylation) versus CuMn (β-stannylation).
