Synthesis of homometallic divalent lanthanide organoimides from benzyl complexes

Abstract

Reaction of LnI2(thf)2 with benzyl potassium affords the homoleptic benzyl complexes [Ln(CH2Ph)2]n of samarium, europium, and ytterbium. In case of Eu and Yb, treatment of [Ln(CH2Ph)2]n with one equivalent of 2,6-diisopropylaniline gives access to the tetrameric organoimide complexes [(thf)Ln(m3-NDipp)]4, representing the first examples of homometallic Ln(II) imides. It is revealed that the Yb(II) organoimide chemistry is significantly different from that of calcium.
