Abstract

The new zinc complexes 2,6-(ArN[double bond, length as m-dash]CH)2C6H3ZnBu (6) and 2,6-(ArN[double bond, length as m-dash]CH)2C6H3ZnCl2Li(THF)3 (7), supported by a bis(imino)phenyl NCN pincer ligand, were prepared (Ar = 2,6-iPr2C6H3). The reaction of complex 7 with LiHBEt3 resulted in a hydride transfer to the C[double bond, length as m-dash]N imine group to afford an unusual zinc dimer [η1(C),κ1(Nimine)-2-(ArN[double bond, length as m-dash]CH)-6-(Zn-N(Ar)CH2)C6H3Zn]2 (9). The latter transformation occurs via the formation of compound (η1(C),κ1(N)-2,6-(ArN[double bond, length as m-dash]CH)2C6H3)2Zn (8) which can also be accessed by the reduction of 7 with KC8.
