Abstract

Recent advances in cooperative chemistry have shown the enormous potential of main group heterobimetallic complexes for the functionalisation of aromatic molecules. Going beyond main group metal chemistry, here we provide an overview on the synthesis, structure and reactivity of bimetallic complexes which combine an alkali-metal (AM= Li, Na) with a divalent earth-abundant transition metal (M= Mn, Fe, Co, Ni), containing the utility silyl amide HMDS (HMDS = N(SiMe3)2). Advancing the understanding on how cooperative effects operate in these bimetallic (ate) systems, selected examples of their applications in deprotonative metalation are also discussed with special emphasis on the constitution of the metalated intermediates.
