Abstract

Direct zincation of ferrocene and ruthenocene by the synergic base [PMDETA.K(μ-TMP)(μ-Me)Zn(Me)] produces the monozincated complexes [{PMDETA.K(μ-Me)2Zn(Fc)}∞] and [{PMDETA.K(μ-Me)2Zn(Rc)}2] respectively, having similar monomeric (dinuclear) units but aggregating supramolecularly in very different polymeric and dimeric forms.
