Reaction of the dimeric calcium hydride, [(BDI)CaH]2 (1), with Ph3SnH ensues with elimination of H2 to provide [(BDI)Ca-μ2-H-(SnPh3)Ca(BDI)] (3) and [(BDI)Ca(SnPh3)]2 (4) alongside dismutation to Ph4Sn, H2 and Sn(0). DFT analysis indicates that stannyl anion formation occurs through deprotonation of Ph3SnH and with retention of dinuclear species throughout the reactions.
