Reactions of the anionic gallium(i) heterocycle, [:Ga([N(Ar)C(H)]2)] (Ar = C6H3Pri2-2,6), with two N, N-chelated zinc chloride complexes have yielded the compounds, [(Pri2NC[N(Ar)]2)ZnGa([N(Ar)C(H)]2)] and [(tmeda)Zn(Ga([N(Ar)C(H)]2))2] which contain the first crystallographically characterised Zn-Ga bonds.
