The reactions of 1,3-diisopropyl-4,5-dimethylimidazolin-2-imine (Im iPrNH) with the trimethylsilylmethyl (neosilyl) complexes [M(CH2SiMe3)3(THF)2] (M = Sc, Y, Lu) in a 3:1 ratio afforded tetramethylsilane (TMS) and the dinuclear imidazolin-2-iminato complexes [M2(ImiPrN) 6(THF)n] (1a, M = Sc, n = 0; 1b, M = Y, n = 1; 1c, M = Lu, n = 1), in which the metal atoms are bridged by two μ2-Im iPrN ligands. 1a crystallized from THF/pentane solution to afford a solvent-free, centrosymmetric, dimeric complex, in which both scandium atoms attain a coordination number of four; three uncoordinated THF per dimer are observed. In contrast, the X-ray crystal structures of 1b·2THF and 1c·2THF reveal the formation of unsymmetric THF solvate complexes that contain one THF ligand and therefore both four- and five-coordinated rare earth metal atoms; other THF molecules are non-coordinating. The reaction of [Y(CH2SiMe3)3(THF)2] with three equivalents of the sterically more demanding 1,3-di-tert-butylimidazolin-2-imine (ImtBuNH) afforded the mononuclear complex [Y(Im tBuN)3(THF)2] (2) with a five-coordinated yttrium atom, as indicated by X-ray diffraction analysis of 2·2THF. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
