Mg–Mg bond polarization induced by a superbulky β-diketiminate ligand

Author affiliations

Abstract

The bulk of a recently reported superbulky β-diketiminate ligand was further increased by introducing tBu substituents in the ligand backbone. Attempts to isolate free Mg radicals with this extremely bulky ligand failed. Instead, a dinuclear Mg(I) complex with one chelating and one monodentate β-diketiminate ligand was isolated. Asymmetry in metal coordination results in a polarized Mg–Mg bond.
