Structural transformations in dinuclear zinc complexes involving Zn–Zn bonds

Abstract

Reduction of Zn2(μ-η2-Me2Si(NDipp)2)2 with 4 equiv. of KC8 resulted in a dramatic structural transformation into [(η2-Me2Si(NDipp)2)ZnZn(η2-Me2Si(NDipp)2)]2− featuring a Zn–Zn bond instead of [Zn2(μ-η2-Me2Si(NDipp)2)2]2−; the mechanism of the observed structural transformations arising from the Zn–Zn bond formation involving the intermediate of [Zn2(μ-η2-Me2Si(NDipp)2)2] was elucidated by elaborate computations.
