Catalytic Transformations of Molecular Dinitrogen by Iron and Cobalt–Dinitrogen Complexes as Catalysts
- First Online:
This chapter describes the recent advances of the iron and cobalt-catalyzed transformations of molecular dinitrogen into not only silylamine but also ammonia and hydrazine under mild reaction conditions. In both reaction systems, reaction pathways are proposed based on the experimental and theoretical studies on iron and cobalt–dinitrogen complexes.
