Abstract

The addition of substoichiometric quantities of lithium halides to the lithium hexamethyldisilazide was studied. Surprisingly, a novel class of mixed amido-halide macrocyclic complexes, namely metal anionic crowns (MACs) was revealed (see picture: Li pink, N yellow, Cl green, Si orange, C black).
