Abstract

Two Mni-Mn-bonded dimanganese complexes, as well as the tetracadmium complex shown in the picture, were obtained by reduction of [M 2{η- 2-Me 2Si(NDipp) 2} 2] (M=Mn, Cd; Dipp=2,6-iPr 2C 6H 3). Their structures are consistent with those of calculated intermediates in the reduction of [Zn 2{η- 2-Me 2Si(NDipp) 2} 2].
