Bonding situation in Be[N(SiMe3)2]2 – an experimental and computational study.
The solid state structure of Be[N(SiMe3)2]2 (1) was determined by in situ crystallisation and the bonding situation investigated by quantum chemical calculations. The Be-N bond is predominantly ionic, but some evidence for the presence of a partial Be-N double bond character was found.
