Abstract

Zany zincation: Seemingly simple zincation reactions of aromatic or aliphatic nitriles are in reality highly complicated affairs involving separated ion pairs (see X-ray structure; yellow Na, blue N, green Zn; left cation, right anion) or joined ion pairs. The results also show that the free zincate anions can engage in complicated dismutation processes.
