We have progressed metal based syntheses using rare earth metals considerably over the past several years. Organo-mercury and -thallium reagents have been extremely versatile reagents in redox transmetallation (equation 1) while the mercury reagents have also found great utility in the more convenient redox transmetallation/protolysis reactions (equation 2).[1] We have now extended this rare earth chemistry to the use of less toxic reagents such as RSnMe3,[2], BiPh3,[3] and most recently using pseudo-Grignard type chemistry[4] (equation 3) and use of I2 to activate the metal (equation 4).[5] This presentation will involve a discussion of the latter two methods.

In lanthanoid pseudo-Grignard chemistry, we have been able to use these reagents in protolysis reactions to deliver heteroleptic iodo(metal organic)lanthanoid species in good yield,[4] despite previous reports of the mixed oxidation state for PhLnI (Ln = Eu, Yb).[5] The species obtained our attempts to crystallise “PhYbI(thf)n” complexes will be presented.

We have recently shown that bulk lanthanoid metal can be activated by a few % of iodine crystals in the presence of a protic ligand to produce metal-organic compounds (equation 4). In this presentation, the new directions of the project will be discussed along with the most recent exciting results.
