Abstract

The coordination geometry at the Mg atom in the title complex, [MgBrz{(C3Hv)2NH}{(C2Hs)20}], is shown to be distorted tetrahedral. The presence of a secondary amine ligand is unusual in its derivation from an amide. It is also unusual to find both an ether and a simple amine solvating the same magnesium centre [MgI--N 1 2.158 (3) and Mgl--O1 2.041 (3) A].
