Abstract

Treatment of both polymeric [{(2-pyridyl)-(SiMe3)C}SbCl](infinity) and the implied stibene (Sb=C) containing red oil, formed as a result of Me3SiCl elimination from [{(2-pyridyl)(SiMe3)(2)C}(2)SbCl], with excess Et2Zn in the presence of tmeda results in the geminal organodizinc chiral cage tetramer [Zn{C(SiMe3)(2-pyridyl)}](4) possessing three-coordinate metal centers, [(tmeda)Et-(Cl)Zn] and [(tmeda)Et2Zn].
