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
