Abstract

In a new type of reactivity for sodium TMP-zincate [(TMEDA) NaZn(Bu-t)(2)(TMP)] (1), transamination reactions with the amines diisopropylamine, DA(H), hexamethyldisilazane, HMDS(H) and chiral (R)-N-benzyl-alpha-methylbenzylamine have produced new sodium amido-di-tert-butyl zincates (all structurally characterised) with concomitant loss of TMP(H).
