Reductions of the beta-diketiminato group 14 metal(II) chloride complexes, [((But)MesNacnac) ECl] ((But)MesNacnac = [(MesNCBu(t))(2)CH](-); Mes = mesityl; E = Ge, Sn or Pb), with a magnesium(I) dimer have led to differing outcomes, which include the formation of the first beta-diketiminato group 14 metal(I) dimer, [ ((But)MesNacnac)Sn (2)].
