Abstract

Reaction of a bis(imino)acenapthene with the heavier alkaline earth dialkyls [Ae{CH(SiMe3)(2)}(2)(THF)(2)] (Ac = Mg, Ca, Sr) results in deromatization of the aromatic ligand and the isolation of heteroleptic alkyl species which show unprecedented stability toward Schlenk-type redistribution and exceptional catalytic activity toward the hydroamination of aminoalkeries.
