Abstract

Deliberate treatment of solutions of amines with molecular oxygen has given rise to magnesium-substituted derivatives of classical alkali metal amide ring structures (NMNMg)2 (M=Li or Na), but with oxo or peroxo cores. The picture shows the structure of the sodium compound [{(Me3Si)2N}4Na2Mg2(O2)x(O)y].
