Record type: Article


Reaction of (Me2N)(2)Sb(CH2)(3)Sb(NMe2)(2) with 4 equivalents of 2-NHLiPy (Py = pyridyl) generates the novel distibine-centred dianion complex 1,3-[(RNLi)Sb](2)(mu-NR)(CH2)(3).(RNHLi). 3THF (1), incorporating the co-complexation of primary lithium amide; the X-ray crystal structure of 1 reveals a bimetallic imido-/amido-bridged cage structure of interlocking 6-membered rings, crystallising as a single enantiomer.
