    Abstract

    After isolating an unusual binuclear, but monosolvated NaHMDS complex [{(R,R)-TMCDA}·(NaHMDS)2]∞ which polymerises via intermolecular electrostatic Na···MeHMDS interactions, further (R,R)-TMCDA was added to produce the discrete binuclear amide [κ2-{(R,R)-TMCDA}·(NaHMDS)2{κ1-(R,R)-TMCDA}], whose salient feature is the unique monodentate coordination of one of the chiral diamine ligands.
