TL;DR: The coordination chemistry of the mixed-donor tridentate ligand -N(SiMezCH2PR2)2 with the early transition metals of groups 3 and 4 and the lanthanide elements is presented in this paper.
Abstract: The coordination chemistry of the mixed-donor tridentate ligand -N(SiMezCH2PR2)2 with the early transition metals of groups 3 and 4 and the lanthanide elements will be presented. This ancillary ligand has allowed for the formation of phosphine complexes of these hard elements which has in turn induced new reactivity patterns for hydrocarbyl ligands. The stability and reactivity of metal complexes are a function of both the position of the metal in the periodic table and the nature of the ligands. While the former provides for diverse chemical reactivity, it is
