Abstract

Reaction of the magnesium amide Mg(TMP)2 with the lithium amide LiHMDS is accompanied by an unexpected, sterically-promoted hydrogen transfer/amine elimination process, to yield the novel title compound which is the first such heterometallic composition to contain a heteroleptic amide ligand set.
