Abstract

More usually thought of as a base, the sodium zincate [(TMEDA)·Na(μ-TMP)(μ-tBu)Zn(tBu)] 1 can undergo single electron transfer with TEMPO to give [(TMEDA)·Na(μ-TMP)(μ-TEMPO)Zn(tBu)] 2 and [(TMEDA)·Na(μ-TEMPO)2Zn(tBu)] 3; and with chalcone [PhCOCH[double bond, length as m-dash]CHPh] gives [{(TMEDA)·Na(μ-TMP)Zn(tBu)}2(μ-OCPhCH[double bond, length as m-dash]CHPhCHPhCH[double bond, length as m-dash]CPh-μ-O)] which contains two chalcone units C–C coupled though their benzylic C atoms.
