Synthesis and X-ray crystal structures of zinc dichloride complexes supported by a β-diimine ligand

β‐Diimine zinc dichloride complexes [CH2{C(Me)NAr}2]ZnCl2 [Ar = Mes (1), Dipp (2)] were obtained from the reactions of ZnCl2 with the corresponding β‐iminoamines [ArN(H)C(Me)CHC(Me)NAr]. Complexes 1 and 2 were characterized by multinuclear NMR (1H, 13C) and IR spectroscopy, elemental analyses as well as by single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction. The energy differences between the enamine‐imine tautomers of the β‐iminoamines were quantified by quantum chemical calculations.
