Synthesis and solid state structures of a Ga-substituted distibene and the first Sb-analogue bicyclo[1,1,0]butane.

RGa {R=HC[C(Me)N(2,6‐iPr2C6H3)]2} reacts with Sb(NMe2)3 with insertion into the SbN bond and elimination of RGa(NMe2)2 (2), yielding the Ga‐substituted distibene R(Me2N)GaSb=SbGa(NMe2)R (1). Thermolysis of 1 proceeded with elimination of RGa and 2 and subsequent formation of the bicyclo[1.1.0]butane analogue [R(Me2N)Ga]2Sb4 (3).

Dedicated to Prof. M. Scheer on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
