Catalytic Nitrogen Fixation Using Molybdenum–Dinitrogen Complexes as Catalysts
- First Online:
This chapter describes recent advances of molybdenum-catalyzed catalytic nitrogen fixation such as catalytic formation of silylamine and ammonia from dinitrogen under ambient reaction conditions. Hidai, Nishibayashi, Masuda, Mézailles, and their coworkers have achieved the molybdenum-catalyzed silylation and Schrock, Nishibayashi, and their coworkers have achieved the molybdenum-catalyzed formation of ammonia from nitrogen gas under ambient reaction conditions.
