Author affiliations

Abstract

(trip2Sn)2 (trip = 2,4,6-i-Pr3C6H2) reacts with Mg(I) reductants (LMg)2 (L = HC[C(Me)N(dipp)]2) and (L′Mg)2 (L′ = HC[C(Me)N(mes)]2) with Sn–C bond cleavage and formation of the novel metalloid tin cluster Sn10trip8 1 or elemental tin. 1, which contains Sn atoms in the formal oxidation states 0, +I and +II, and the side products LMgtrip (2) and L′Mgtrip (3) were characterized spectroscopically and by single crystal X-ray diffraction.
