Abstract

The first example of a stable zincagermylene,:Ge(TBoN)(ZnL∗) (TBoN = N(SiMe3){B(DipNCH)2}, Dip = C6H3Pri 2-2,6; L∗ = -N{C6H2[C(H)Ph2]2Me-2,6,4}(SiPri 3)) is prepared and shown to have unprecedented reactivity for a germylene, with respect to the activation of dihydrogen. Computational analyses point towards this being partially derived from the electron releasing nature of the amido-zinc fragment, which leads to a narrowing of the HOMO-LUMO gap in the compound.
