Abstract

Magnesium silylamide complexes Mg[N(SiHMe2)2]2(THF)2 and Mg[N(SiPhMe2)2]2 were synthesized according to transsilylamination and alkane elimination protocols, respectively, utilizing Mg[N(SiMe3)2]2(THF)2 and [Mg(n-Bu)]2 as precursors. Cage-like periodic mesoporous silica SBA-1 was treated with donor solvent-free dimeric [Mg{N(SiHMe2)2}2]2, [Mg{N(SiMe3)2}2]2 and monomeric Mg[N(SiPhMe2)2]2, producing hybrid materials [Mg(NR2)2]@SBA-1 with magnesium located mainly at the external surface. Consecutive grafting of [Mg{N(SiHMe2)2}2]2 and [FeII{N(SiHMe2)2}2]2 onto SBA-1 led to heterobimetallic hybrid materials which exhibit complete consumption of the isolated surface silanol groups, evidencing intra-cage surface functionalization. All materials were characterized by DRIFT spectroscopy, nitrogen physisorption and elemental analysis.
