From ethylzinc guanidinate to [Zn10O4]-supertetrahedron


The controlled hydrolysis of an ethylzinc guanidinate complex which affords the alkylzinc cluster containing a [Zn10O4]12+ supertetrahedron core stabilized by the guanidinate ligands is described. Accompaning investigations on the reactivity of this unprecedented cluster toward alcohols resulted in the formation of a mononuclear zinc alkoxide supported by the guanidinate ligands.
