Small Molecule Elimination from Group IVB (Ti, Zr, Hf) Amido Complexes

Description: This article discusses small molecule elimination from group IVB (Ti, Zr, Hf) amido complexes. An ab initio quantum chemical analysis of HX (X = H, CH₃, Cl, NH₂, SiH₃) elimination by group IVB (Ti, Zr, Hf) amidos (H₂(X)M - NH₂ → H₂M = NH + HX), of interest in the context of CVD precursor design, is reported.
