1,8-Bis(silylamido)naphthalene complexes of magnesium and zinc synthesized through alkane elimination reactions (2017)
Journal Article
Bradley, M., Birchall, C., Blake, A. J., Lewis, W., Moxey, G. J., & Kays, D. L. (in press). 1,8-Bis(silylamido)naphthalene complexes of magnesium and zinc synthesized through alkane elimination reactions. Dalton Transactions, 46, doi:10.1039/c7dt00471k. ISSN 1477-9226

The reactions between magnesium or zinc alkyls and 1,8-bis(triorganosilyl)diaminonaphthalenes afford the 1,8-bis(triorganosilyl)diamidonaphthalene complexes with elimination of alkanes. The reaction between 1,8-C10H6(NSiMePh2H)2 and one or two equiva... Read More

A monomeric, heterobimetallic complex with an unsupported Mg−Fe bond (2016)
Journal Article
Birchall, C., Moxey, G. J., McMaster, J., Blake, A. J., Lewis, W., & Kays, D. L. (2017). A monomeric, heterobimetallic complex with an unsupported Mg−Fe bond. Inorganica Chimica Acta, 458, doi:10.1016/j.ica.2016.12.029. ISSN 0020-1693

The phosphinimine, trimethylsilyl-substituted BIPM ligand [BIPM = bis(iminophosphorano)methanide] has been used to stabilise CH(Ph2PNSiMe3)2MgFe(η5-C5H5)(CO)2 (1), which is a structurally authenticated complex exhibiting a direct, unsupported bond be... Read More
