Abstract

The reactions of the imido tin(II) cubane [SnNBut]4 with 3 equiv. of [C10H7NHLi] (C10H7 = 1-naphthyl) and 6 equiv. of [C6H11PHLi] (C6H11 = cyclohexyl) produce [Li(thf)4]+[(ButN)(C10H 7N)3Sn3Li·thf] -·thf·PhMe 1 and [{Sn2(PC6H11)3}2Li 4·4thf]·2thf 2, respectively, containing the first structurally characterised polyimido and polyphosphinidine anions of a divalent group 14 metal.
