Abstract

Reaction of Li[2,6-(Me2NCH2)2C6H3] with ECl3 results in the chelated dichlorides, [2,6-(Me2NCH2)2C6H3]ECl2 (EP (1), As (2), Sb (3), Bi (4)). Compounds 1 and 2 are converted into the corresponding EH2 derivatives, [2,6-(Me2NCH2)2C6H3]EH2 (EP (5), As (6)) by reduction with LiAlH4. The structure of 3 has been determined by X-ray crystallography. Compound 3 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with a=11.135(1), b=8.620(1), c=16.245(2) Å, β=95.87(1)°, V=1551(2) Å3 and Z=4. The geometry at Sb is distorted square pyramidal.
