My project focused on synthesis of diamino-disilane organosilicon ligands. The important of this type of ligand that can be coordinated to the early transition metals such as Zr, Hf and Ta. Also, the main features of these classes of ligands that we are able to control the electronic and the steric effects factors through the amine group. The facile synthetic accessibility and the possibility of preparing large quantities of diamines which serve as ligand precursor for bipodal amido (claws) make them suitable tool for early transition metal.
