A variable‐temperature study of 1,2‐bis(dimethylamino)‐1,2‐bis(2,6‐dimethylanilino)diborane
Abstract:The title compound, C20H32B2N4, is monoclinic at ambient temperature but triclinic (pseudo‐monoclinic) below 150 K. The structures of the two phases, determined at 200 and 120 K, respectively, are very similar, the molecular symmetry being crystallographic C 2 and approximate (local) C 2, respectively. There is significant π conjugation within each N—B—N moiety, but none between them or between the N—B—N and arene moieties.
