Reactions of a Zn(I) complex with group 14 azides – Formation of zinc azide and zinc hexazene complexes

Two zinc hexazene complexes L2Zn2(μ-1,6-R2-N6) (L = HC[C(Me)N(2,4,6-Me3C6H2)]2; R = Ph (3), Dipp = 2,6-i-Pr2C6H3 (4)), were synthesized by reaction of the Zn(I) complex L2Zn2 (1) with phenyl azide and 2,6-diisopropylphenyl azide, respectively. 3 represents the second structurally characterized transition metal hexazene complex. In contrast, reactions of 1 with Me3MN3 (M = Si, Sn) yielded the azido complex [LZn(μ-N3)]2 (2) and Me3M-MMe3.
