Abstract

The reaction of YbI(2) with [K(THF)(3)((But)Nacnac)] ((But)Nacnac = [(DipNCBu(t))(2)CH](-); Dip = C(6)H(3)Pr (2) (i) -2,6) has afforded the dimeric complex, [ Yb(eta(5)-(But)Nacnac)(THF)(mu-I) (2)] 1. The cell parameters of compound 1 are: P-1, a = 10.498(2), b = 13.146(3), c = 16.293(3); alpha = 88.06(3), beta = 79.43(3), gamma = 71.10(3). The compound represents a rare example of a structurally characterized complex exhibiting an eta(5)-interaction between a beta-diketiminate ligand and an ytterbium(II) center
