Anthony Joseph Arduengo, III is the Saxon Professor of Braunschweig University of Technology in Germany. He is notable for his work on chemical compounds with unusual valency, especially in the field of stable carbene research.

Early life

Anthony "Bo" Arduengo was born in 1952 in President Bush's 2003 National Hydrogen Fuel Initiative (HFI)[3] and United States Department of Energy's Chemical Hydrogen Storage Program by more than 30 years).


Arduengo attended Bouldercrest and Meadowview Elementary Schools, and NSF undergraduate fellowships in 1972 & 1973 when he had moved to research in the Burgess group.[4]

As an undergraduate, Arduengo was a member of the [7] of ΚΚΨ. In 1972 he was tapped by the Alpha Eta Circle[8] of ΟΔΚ; later serving as Secretary and President for the local Circle.


Arduengo was a research scientist at DuPont from 1976 to 1977 and from 1984 to 1998, and assistant professor at the University of Illinois from 1977 to 1984.[4] He is currently the Saxon Chair of Chemistry at the University of Alabama and holds a position as adjunct professor at the Technische Universität in Braunschweig, Germany.[4]

In DuPont's Central Research and Development Department, Arduengo began his career in the Chemical Sciences Section (1977 & on return in 1984). In 1988 he was appointed Research Leader. A move into the Polymer Science section of CR&D in 1991 was accompanied by promotion to Group Leader. His final position with DuPont was as Research Fellow which he attained in 1995. The award of an Alexander von Humboldt Senior Research Prize in 1996 began Arduengo's transition back into academe. The one year Humboldt award was spent in Braunschweig, Germany at the Technical University. On return to DuPont, Arduengo maintained a guest Professor appointment in Braunschweig, and in 1999 also made the transition to academe in the U.S. with his assumption of the Saxon Chair in Chemistry at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.[4]


Graduate Research at Georgia Tech

Arduengo's research interests focus largely on the chemistry of new or unusual bonding arrangements, and unusual main group element chemistry, specifically, thiocarbonyl ylides, and low-coordinate hypervalent sulfur compounds.[6][9][10][11]

DuPont 1977

In 1977 when he joined organic synthesis.

University of Illinois 1978–1984

At main group element chemistry and hypervalency. Many of the technical discussions between Martin and Arduengo would take place over lunch (the choice of restaurants often influenced by the quality of the napkins for writing chemical structures).[15] To facilitate discussions about unusual molecular structures and bonding for main-group element centers, Martin and Arduengo devised the N-X-L nomenclature system.[16][17][18] The synthesis and characterization of the first compound with a planar T-shaped, 10-electron 3-coordinate bonding arrangement at a phosphorus atom, ADPO,[19] was also accomplished by the Arduengo group at Illinois and paved the way for a range of novel main-group element chemistry (including the discovery of edge inversion) on his return to DuPont. The final Illinois research extended the newly discovered ADPO chemistry to the arsenic analog (ADAsO).[20]

DuPont 1984–1999

On returning to DuPont in 1984, Arduengo resumed a position in CR&D and continued the research into the recently discovered ADPO molecule and related structures. This line of research proved to be extremely fruitful and resulted in a steady string of publications on new and unusual bonding arrangements.[21][22] The ADPO related chemistry provided a basis for the discovery of a new inverson process, edge inverson, which was fully characterized and modelled by the collaborative work of Arduengo and David A. Dixon at DuPont.[23] Additionally, the DuPont team provided experimental verification on the new inversion pathway at 3-coordinate phosphorus centers[24] and a 4-coordinate germanium molecule.[25]

Arduengo's work with VOC paints.[27][28][29] Eventually, DuPont waterborne performance coatings would be used by Lotus on their Elise and Exige models.[30][31] Arduengo's effort on the industrial-scale syntheses[32][33][34] of the catalysts for the paints on which he worked would launch his re-entry into the area of carbene chemistry, but this time it was to be nucleophilic rather than electrophilic carbenes.[1][35] The observation that the catalyst syntheses were well tolerant of varied reaction conditions and substituents led Arduengo to postulate that the imidazol-2-ylidenes that were intermediates in the syntheses had to be far more stable than the then conventional wisdom would allow.[35][36]

As Arduengo's involvement in the automotive coatings program came to an end, he submitted a proposal to the management in CR&D to isolate these apparently stable carbenes and study their chemistry. The proposal was soundly declined with the admonition that he should have certainly known better than to make such a suggestion in light of the long history of carbene chemistry that firmly established them as reactive intermediates that could not be isolated as stable entities.[1][35][36] However, Arduengo (already well-aware of the history) had the starting materials on hand for the chemistry and decided to proceed with the experiments.[36] “Arduengo’s gamble paid off. In 1991, more than 150 years after the first attempt ...”[37] a stable crystalline carbene was isolated and characterized in laboratories at DuPont.[38] After the first successful reaction to produce a stable carbene, Arduengo won the support of DuPont management[36] and research in this area continued. Carbenes bearing a variety of substituent groups were prepared and characterized.[39][40] The saturated imidazolin-2-ylidenes that were extensively investigated by Hans-Werner Wanzlick thirty years earlier (without isolation) were now also shown to be stable enough to isolate with appropriate substituents at nitrogen.[41] An air-stable carbene was produced.[42] The chemistry was extended to include thiazol-2-ylidenes (conjectured to exist in 1957 as a reactive intermediate in the vitamin B1 catalytic cycle, but not isolated for 40 years).[43] The imidazol-2-ylidenes were extensively characterized by their NMR properties,[44] photo-electron spectroscopy,[45] and exact experimental electron density mapping by X-ray and neutron diffraction techniques.[46]

The Arduengo group's characterization of [56] 5carbene•PF,[57] 5carbene•AsF,[57] 5carbene•SbF,[57] and 3carbene•BF[57] adducts. Arduengo's final work on carbenes at DuPont included synthesis and characterization of carbene·alkaline earth metal,[58] carbene•antimony,[59] carbene•cadmium,[60] and carbene•lithium[61] adducts. Reactions of carbenes with phosphinidenes[62][63] were also reported from Arduengo's laboratory in addition to insertion reactions of imidazolin-2-ylidenes.[64]

In 1998, Arduengo and coworkers carefully re-examined the earlier attempts to produce stable carbenes in Wanzlick's laboratory in light of the knowledge and experience gained from the recent successful experiments at DuPont.[65] Although the majority of Wanzlick's work on the saturated imidazolin-2-ylidenes would have been expected to yield dimers in the absence of bulky substituents on nitrogen, a single (unsaturated) imidazol-2-ylidene, 1,3,4,5-tetraphenylimidazol-2-ylidene, remained as an example of a carbene that could (should) have been isolable. The re-examination of Wanzlick's original procedure[66] identified some key experimental features that would have hindered the original researchers. With these problems corrected, the DuPont scientists were able to isolate the target carbene and fully characterize it including an X-ray structure determination. In a tribute to Hans-Werner Wanzlick, these results were published under the title “1,3,4,5-Tetraphenylimidazol-2-ylidene: The Realization of Wanzlick's Dream.”[65]

University of Alabama 1999–present

At the University of Alabama research from Arduengo's laboratory has focused on enhancements to the basic structure of the imidazol-2-ylidenes through substituent effects leading to novel compounds like a cyclopentadienyl fused imidazol-2-ylidene.[69][70][71][72] Research into the unusual valency in diphosphacyclobutane-2,4-diyls has been reported from the Arduengo group in collaboration with Professors Masaaki Yoshifuji and Shigekazu Ito.[73][74][75][76][77][78][79] Arduengo also directs research programs into Chemical Hydrogen Storage and nonlinear optical materials.[4]
